Nigerian players sold their wares last weekend and performed well abroad.


Topping the Nigeria team of the week are John Obi Mikel, Wilfred Ndidi, Tyrone Ebuehi and Chidera Ejuke.

Some unheralded names like Blessing Olabiran and Michael Ihiekwe did well to show quality for their clubs.

Below is TheCable’s team of the week:


Sebastian Osigwe – Lugano

The former Flying Eagles shot-stopper kept Lugano in the game with some near-miraculous stops against Schaffhausen.

Dominic Iorfa – Sheffield Wednesday


The defender put in a typically tireless shift, making inroads against Cardiff City. It’s performances like this that Sheffield Wednesday need to be consistent and top of the league this season.

Michael Ihiekwe – Rotherham United

Ihiekwe was dominant at the back in the win at Wycombe Wanderers. He also headed home a last gasp winner for Rotherham United.

Wilfred Ndidi – Leicester City


The Nath Boys product utilised his speed and physical flavour. He was dominant during aerial duels against West Bromwich Albion and effective on the ground.

Tyrone Ebuehi – Tyrone Ebuehi

Another versatile full-back in our line-up, the Benfica loanee makes the best XI for the second week running. He pushed up and supported the attack when needed.

Chidera Ejuke – CSKA Moscow


He had a lively performance against Spartak Moscow. Ejuke also opened his goal diary for CSKA Moscow.

John Obi Mikel – Stoke City

The engine of the Potters midfield provided energy and determination for 90 minutes.

Ovie Ejaria – Reading


The versatile Ejaria put the cherry on Reading’s cake by scoring the second goal against Derby County.

Blessing Olabiran – Olimpik Donetsk

Against Dnipro, Olabiran played as if he has a point to prove and he inspired their downfall as he tormented their back line.

Olakunle Olusegun – Fremad Amager

He caused Vendsysell all kinds of trouble and was at the heart of Fremad Amager’s attacks as a substitute. He bagged a brace in the process.

David Okereke – Club Brugge

A very wonderful display which was capped with a goal for Club Brugge who whitewashed Waasland Beveren 4-1.
