Nigeria
4-1 Cote d'Ivoire

The home-based Super Eagles complete with Sunday Mba tested their new found confidence and resolve against their counterparts from Cote d’Ivoire and the Nigerian side enhanced their reputation with a comprehensive 4-1 win.

And out of that squad, the Afcon hero further enhanced his value with two goals and an assist. Pundits had wondered on the falling standard of the Enugu Rangers’ acquisition but his first-time volley showed a man high on confidence while the penalty he took was sheer brilliance.

He capped a very fine individual performance by setting up the third goal with a blistering run down the line and the ability to pull the ball back perfectly to get the fourth goal.

Now teams in Europe will realize that he is not a spent force – he still has so much in his locker.

Congratulations to Sunday Mba, Goal.com's Nigeria Player of the Week winner!

The Shortlist

Gambo Mohammed - Kano Pillars/Nigeria

The Kano Pillars redeemed himself in the eyes of the Nigerian football fan with a poacher’s goal against the Elephants of Cote d’Ivoire last weekend. His second goal, which was cancelled by an offside call showed all his technique, and with that performance, he has gotten himself a lucrative contract with Club Africain of Tunisia.

Taye Taiwo - Bursaspor

The Super Eagles left-back is hoping to resurrect his ailing career in Turkey with Bursaspor. His Milan adventure ended in tatters and he will he hoping for a new beginning in Turkey.

Michael Eneramo - Besiktas

After two and a half seasons of scoring goals consistently for Sivasspor - 29 goals in 79 league appearances, the 27-year old will be getting his chance at one of the big clubs in Turkey. He will alo hope that his form over the next few months will make him force his way into the Super Eagles under Coach Stephen Keshi.
