Osigwe gets the nod in goal, Awaziem & Omeruo partner in defence, Mathew remains in midfield as Nwakaeme leads the attack alongside Ejuke & Sekidika.

Here’s the Nigerian Team of The Week:

GK - SEBASTIEN OSIGWE- FC LUGANO (SWITZERLAND, SUPER LEAGUE)

Osigwe put in a good performance in FC Lugano’s match against league giants Basel, pulling off 4 saves in the process. This performance was however unable to save the team from a 2-1 defeat.

LWB - CALVIN BASSEY - RANGERS FC (SCOTLAND, PREMIERSHIP)

Rangers won the Scottish cup final, thanks to a man of the match display from Calvin Bassey who stood firm through the course of the game. His outstanding performance earns him our Star of the week.

LCB - CHIDOZIE AWAZIEM - ALANYASPOR (TURKEY, SUPERLIG)

Awaziem made a total of 7 ball recoveries in the match against Faith Karagumurk, helping Alanyaspor to a clean sheet and all 3 points as they won 0-1 away from home.

CB - KENETH OMERUO - CD LEGANES (SPAIN, SEGUNDA DIVISION)

With 4 interceptions, a win and clean sheet, Omeruo makes our TOTW. He put in a good shift, commanding the defence throughout Leganes’ triumph away at Ponferradina.

RCB - IGOH OGBU - LILLESTROM SK (NORWAY, ELITESERIEN)

Igoh understood the assignment this past weekend for Lillestrom. The 22-year old made 4 interceptions, 7 ball recoveries and got on the scoresheet, helping his side to all 3 points.

RWB - OLA AINA - TORINO (ITALY, SERIE A)

Although Torino lost 0-3 to Roma, Ola Aina was a bright light as he put in a great shift for the team. Aina completed a total of 6 tackles and made 6 interceptions. His effort was unfortunately not enough to save the team from defeat.

LCM - IFEANYI MATHEW - LILLESTROM SK (NORWAY, ELITESERIEN)

Ifeanyi Mathew proved again why he’s a key player for Lillestrom in their 1-4 victory. He was present in all areas of the pitch, making in an impressive 6 ball recoveries and 4 interceptions.

RCM - TOSIN KEHINDE- RANDERS FC (DENMARK, SUPERLIGAEN)

Tosin Kehinde put in an effort to be commended, scoring a goal to put his team back in the game as Randers lost narrowly 2-1 against FC Midtjylland.

LW - CHIDERA EJUKE- CSKA MOSCOW (RUSSIA, PREMIER LEAGUE)

Chidera Ejuke was in the mood in CSKA’s 4-0 victory over Rostov. The team was rampant and Ejuke was again very brilliant. The tricky winger completed 7 dribbles, creating 4 chances and bagging an assist in the process.

ST - ANTHONY NWAKAEME- TRABZONSPOR (TURKEY, SUPERLIG)

Anthony Nwakaeme rounded off his 21/22 season with a goal as Trabzonspor fell to a 3-1 defeat away to Basaksehir. The league champions had nothing to play for, but Tony still made his mark.

RW - JESSE SEKIDIKA - EYUSPOR (TURKEY, TFF 1. LIG)

Jesse Sedikika’s first goal of the season sealed a 0-3 victory and a promotion playoffs spot for Eyuspor. The pacy winger also completed 9 dribbles in an all-round impressive display
