With MFM FC shocking FC Ifeanyi Ubah 1-0 at the Fortress, Futbalgalore.com selects the best XI from Round 24.
Emmanuel Nasamu [MFM FC]
Performed a handful of important saves to halt any chance of an Ifeanyi Ubah comeback. He was especially alert when stopping Seka Pascal’s penalty kick. Secure.
Abdullahi Ferinyaro [MFM FC]
The defender had to soak up some pressure but kept things solid at the back making a number of tackles and clearances and halting a sometimes rampant FC Ifeanyi Ubah. Resolute.
Austin Opara [MFM FC]
He was the man to turn to in the defence and held ultra steady throughout this game. Kept Seka Pascal quiet and after making a couple of dozen clearances, interceptions and tackles he was kept busy. Solid.
Emmanuel Anyanwu [Kano Pillars]
Always an outlet, kept possession very well and struck fear into the hosts with his commitment. A tower in defence he was solid right through and guarded his half of the field comprehensively. Assured.
Emmanuel Makama [Nasarawa United]
Always aware of his teammates’ intentions, he controlled his flank and had the best pass percentage of the team. Scored two goals for the Solid Miners. Attentive.
Anthony Omaka [Sunshine Stars]
He energised his teammates with his positioning and general play. Competitive.
Chukwuka Onuwa [MFM FC]
At the centre of some of MFM’s best moves he ghosted into the danger zone several times, supplying passes and key crosses to his forwards. He was eventually rewarded for his good work when was involved in the solitary goal. Responsive.
Julius Emiloju [MFM FC]
Although a little pinned back in the first half, he got the game going with his resolute and mobile performance. Comprehensive.
Thomas Zenke [Nasarawa United]
The winger had a great game, menacing with every ball. Threatening.
David Tyavkase [Lobi Stars]
What more can you ask than a super performance from the ageless forward, especially as his goal was excellent. He frightened the away defenders. Intimidating.
Abdulrahman Bashir [Enyimba]
He looked like he was up for the game and scored a good goal. Menacing.
