A week of high drama and goals scored, Futbalgalore.com picks the best Nigerian XI.
Daniel Akpeyi [Chippa United]
On top form, he was unafraid to leave his line and made several outstanding saves against Golden Arrows. Commanding.
Efe Ambrose [Hibernian]
Along with his fellow defenders he held off the Dundee FC attackers all afternoon with ease. He provided an assist in the game. Imposing.
Isiaka Oladuntoye [Enyimba]
Against Rayon Sports, the former Kwara United defender grew in influence as the game wore on. He picked his moment to move forward and scored. Magnificent.
William Troost-Ekong [Udinese]
Solid, physically unruffled and made several important interceptions when needed at Chievo Verona. Daunting.
Utim Ukouwem [Enyimba]
Ruled the left flank and consistently supplied sublime crosses. He also made several absolutely crucial interceptions and scored. Overwhelming.
Afeez Aremu [Start]
The Flying Eagles ace ran the game with his bravery, speed, touch and a physical prowess, which simply overpowered his opposite numbers. He was a complete beast at the heart of midfield against Bodoe/Glimt. Irresistible.
Ahmed Musa [Al-Nassr]
The Super Eagles player held his team together and netted a hat trick. He was a constant threat upfront for his team. Entertaining.
Arnaut Danjuma [Club Brugge]
He did his best work coming in from the left and set up one of the goals. He was also on song. Always ready to run and bring the ball forward with precision and skill. Exacting.
Josh Maja [Sunderland]
Maja was relentless in his hounding of the opposition. His pace and speed exemplify him as today’s ultra-modern attacker and his runs were always positive. Persistent.
Stephen Odey [FC Zürich]
Consistently bamboozled Luzern central defensive duo with his speed of thought and movement. He scored at the right time. The young striker caused problems. Unrelenting.
Kelechi Iheanacho [Leicester City]
Nacho recognised the dynamics of the game, changing the flow and scoring one with a perfect finish. Stupendous.
