Ndidi, Aina, Adarabioyo… TheCable’s team of the week

Ndidi, Aina, Adarabioyo… TheCable’s team of the week

After a pulsating weekend that saw a couple of Nigerian players perform well for their various clubs, TheCable picks the best XI.

Maduka Okoye [Sparta Rotterdam]

Made a series of incredible saves and was very reliable for Sparta Rotterdam. Outrageous.

Tosin Adarabioyo [Fulham]


Ran the show with utmost determination and intelligence. Kept Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane quiet. Organised.

Leon Balogun [Rangers]

Balogun stood his ground, closing down every attempt by Dundee United to bypass him. Outstanding.


Ola Aina [Fulham]

Aina was one of the main components of a laudable defence. His presence at the heart of defence alongside Adarabioyo prevented Liverpool’s attacking trio of Firmino, Mane and Mo Salah from causing mayhem. Obstinate.

Brian Idowu [Khimki]

Tortured the opposition and never allowed them any respite. Ominous.


Wilfred Ndidi [Leicester City]

As usual, everything went through him and he anticipated the forays from Brighton perfectly. He also pushed forward continuously. Optimum.

Ademola Lookman [Fulham]

Seen a lot of action and got into the right place at the right time. Lookman provided an assist as Fulham drew 1-1 against Liverpool. Optimal.


Sadiq Umar [Almeria]

Jololo scored the opening goal. Kept probing and impressed. Obtrusive.


Moses Ebiye [Ham Kam]

Ebiye was exceptional and could not be stopped. He played the starring role in a deadly brace. Opportunistic.


Taiwo Abdulrahman [Zemplin Michalovce]

Caused trouble from the off and topped a superb performance with a sparkling brace. Sharp.

Anthony Okpotu [Qatar SC]

Beat the opponents several times and showed all the enthusiasm of a teenager when getting to score a brace. Omniscient.
