News Hub Creator

Players did well to enhance their reputation at the weekend.

Here is the Nigeria Team of the week which is deployed in the usual 4-4-2 formation. Let us know your thoughts.

Adeleye Adebayo - Hapoel Jerusalem

Adeleye's saves almost handed Hapoel Jerusalem a point against Maccabi Tel Aviv. His stops to deny Eduoardo Guerrero, Gavriel Kanichowsky, Luis Hern√°ndez and Stipe Perica were the standouts. The youngster wasn't at fault for Guerrero's winner.

Godswill Ekpolo - Hacken

Started off slowly but then put in an uncompromising performance and scored from Tebo Franklin's assist before half-time.

Leon Balogun - Rangers

Comfortably dealt with any Hibernian players that tried to beat him and occasionally advanced forward from defence. The former Brighton and Hove Albion star gave a good account of himself.

William Troost-Ekong - Watford

Superb in his positional play and distribution, he was also competently organising his defence with confidence. He wasn't at fault for Leeds United's winner at Elland Road.

Tyrone Ebuehi - Venezia

The inspiration for Venezia's 1-1 draw at Cagliari. Ebuehi offered an attacking outlet whenever the opportunity arose.

Afeez Aremu - St. Pauli

Was important in both destroying opposition play and the construction of Dynamo Dresden attacks. The former IK Start man was rewarded with full 90 minutes action.

Frank Onyeka - Brentford

Provided flair and energy as well as drive from midfield as Brentford shocked West Ham United in London.

Taiwo Awoniyi - Union Berlin

A peerless performance from Awoniyi. He inspired Union Berlin's comeback at Mainz with a brace.

Blessing Eleke - Genclerbirligi

Scored a brace and caused problems for the opposition with his electric performance. The striker is beginning to fulfil his true potentials.

Kelechi Iheanacho - Leicester City

The Foxes might have drawn with Crystal Palace, but Iheanacho scored a well-taken goal in the thriller. Senior Man is on fire.

Michael Olise - Crystal Palace

Olise performed well and did not squander his opportunity when he thrown into the fray against Leicester City. Scored a goal for Palace.
