Ahmed Musa has continued to show consistency in the colours of CSKA Moscow and has earned himself the spot as the team's leading goal scorer over the last two seasons.

Musa was in South Africa last Wednesday to play for the Super Eagles in the Mandela Challenge where he provided the assist for the second goal scored by Uche Nwofor. He also had a chance to score which he narrowly missed.

Musa then flew back to Russia and scored the only goal in the match against Kuban Krasnodarto help maintain their momentum in the league as they chase back to back title. He has scored three goals in five league games this season while he has created six chances for his team mates to score.

Congratulations to Ahmed Musa's Nigeria Player of the Week winner!

The Shortlist

Christian Omeruo - Sunshine stars

Christian scored two goals - both headers, against, league leaders, Kano Pillars last Saturday and is fast earning himself the accolade as the new 'Headmaster' after the exploits of former Super Eagles midfielder, Mutiu Adepoju.

Christian has now scored five goals from his defensive position this season.

Nosa Igiebor  - Real Betis

The Super Eagles midfielder is coming back into his own and the sale of Benat to Atletic Bilbao has now surely given the player the platform to showcase his talents.

Igiebor held his own against the Real Madrid midfielders and was unfortunate not to have scored with two headers.

Leke James - Aalesund

Aalesund won 2-1 away against Tromso with Leke James getting the first goal in the 23rd minute. The 20-year old has now scored eight goals in 20 league game.
