thumbnail Hello,

Imoh Ezekiel continues to show his worth for his Belgian team, both in the league and in Europe

Nigeria Player of the Week
Imoh Ezekiel
AGE 19
PLAYS FOR Standard Liege
Standard Liege
3-1 KR
0-2 Standard Liege

It was a tough decision as many Nigerian strikers abroad had good weekends by getting on the score sheet but the Belgium-based lad nicked it with his two goals in the Europa League and an assist in the league despite not playing full matches.

The 19-year-old has started his second season with Standard on a very bright note as he continues to produce the goods. He got two goals against KR of Finland in the Europa League second qualifying round to round up a 6-2 aggregate win.

The former 36 Lions FC striker came on against KR in the 57th minute and scored in the 68th and 73rd minutes. Also last Saturday in a Jupiler Liga match away to Mechelen, he started and lasted for 77 minutes before he was replaced by Igoe de Camargo but he provided the assist for the first goal of that encounter in the 57th minute.

Congratulations to Imoh Ezekiel,'s Nigeria Player of the Week winner!

The Shortlist

Ahmed Musa - CSKA Moscow

The CSKA Moscow winger cum striker got the winning goal for his team last Sunday in the Russia Premier League.

He pounced on a rebound off the cross bar to round off a 2-1 win over local rivals, Locomotiv Moscow. He also in the process scored his second league goal in three matches.

Emmanuel Emenike - Spartak Moscow

Emenike was chosen in the Team of the Week in Russia on account of the display against Dynamo Moscow in a local derby as his team ran out 4-1 winners.

The much sought after striker was a constant thorn in the side of the defenders, pouncing on their mistakes and making them commit silly errors. he also scored a goal to make it two goals in three league matches

Chigozie Agbim - Enugu Rangers/Super Eagles

When the going got tough for the home-based Super Eagles last Saturday in Abidjan, the goalkeeper made himself big in two one-on-ones to help the team qualify for CHAN for the very first time.

Agbim proved that you do not have to big in stature to be a commanding presence between the goal posts.
