NIGERIAN TEAM OF THE WEEK (NOVEMBER 8TH - 1OTH 2019)

Formation: (4-2-4)

Sebastian Osigwe makes his first appearance in our Team of the Week.

Wilfred Ndidi & Azubuike Okechukwu make up a seemingly impenetrable midfield.

Chidera Ejuke makes the squad following an excellent brace.

Leke James is our Star Player of the week

Sebastian Osigwe: The shot stopper played well for SC Kriens, keeping a clean sheet on the way to a comfortable 3-0 Swiss Challenge League victory.

Jamilu Collins: The left-back was one of the best players for Paderborn as they suffered yet another Bundesliga defeat, leaving them rooted to the bottom of the table.

Semi Ajayi: His usual self, Semi Ajayi makes our team for the second straight week, making 2 clearances, 3 tackles and 1 interception in West Brom's 0-1 league win.

William Troost-Ekong: The centre-back played well, as Udinese were held to a goalless Serie A draw vs SPAL.

Ola Aina: Best defender this week. Ola Aina had a very good game playing at right wing-back, completing 86.7% of his passes whilst creating one big chance for Torino in their 4-0 win vs Brescia.

Wilfred Ndidi: The most in-form Nigerian player at the moment. Ndidi had another excellent game in Leicester's midfield. He nearly got on the scoresheet, hitting the crossbar in their 2-0 Premier League victory over Arsenal.

Azubuike Okechukwu: Azubuike continues his impressive season in Turkey's top-flight.

He was excellent in midfield for Basaksehir, creating one big chance in their 2-1 SuperLig win.

Chidera Ejuke: An incredible 2-goal performance by the 21-year old. He scored two second half goals to lead his SC Heerenveen side to a 2-1 comeback victory over Sparta Rotterdam in the Eredivisie. Watch the Goals.

Leke James (Star of the Week): Leke James scored two goals for Molde FK, as they ran out 4-0 winners to clinch the Norwegian Eliteserien title.

Simy Nwankwo: Fresh off being named Serie B player of the month, Simy Nwankwo is back in the headlines with a goal and an assist for Crotone in their 3-1 win vs Ascoli.

Samuel Chukwueze: Although only starting on the bench, Chukwueze came on at half-time to inject some life into Villarreal as they suffered a disappointing 3-1 La Liga defeat at RCD Mallorca.

What do you think of the squad ? Did we get it right ?
