Returning to the Super Eagles after a seven-month absence, Emmanuel Emenike showed the predatory instincts that have been largely missed by the national team in his absence.

 Emenike’s goal in the 45th minute of the encounter against Malawi on Saturday gave the Eagles the needed fillip going into the second half.

 Though he is yet to open his account for the season with Fenerbahce, he had already scored four times for Spartak Moscow before his transfer.

He also made it two goals in two matches for the Super Eagles on Tuesday as the team walloped Burkina Faso 4-1 in Kaduna. Emenike came on as a substitute in the second half to make it 10 goals in 18 appearances for Nigeria.

Congratulations to Emmanuel Emenike Goal.com's Nigeria Player of the Week winner!

The Shortlist

Brown Ideye - Nigeria & Dynamo Kiev

After a barren run that saw him even booed in training by fans, Brown Ideye reminded the same fans that he still knows where the goal is.

The Dynamo Kiev striker scored two goals against Burkina Faso on Tuesday. Maybe the brace will now kick-start his season.

Ifeanyi Edeh  - Enyimba FC

Edeh continued his good form for Enyimba by scoring a brace against Lobi Stars and pushing the Aba Millionaires closer to the top of the Nigeria Professional Football League.

Ahmed Musa - CSKA Moscow

Musa was named as the CSKA Moscow player for the month of August after he polled 41% of the votes by fans. Musa scored thrice in August and all his goals were winning goals in tight league matches.
