It was another weekend of great goals and performances by Nigeria stars across Europe with usual suspects Victor Osimhen and Paul Onuachu still among the goals, while Kelechi Iheanacho still made an impact coming off the Leciester City bench.
The exciting youngster returned to the Hammarby squad with a bang again as he scored one of the goals and provided an assist for the home team to trounce IFK Goteborg 3-0. He made the Team of the Week and was voted the Player of the Week. This was after he grabbed the match winner in the previous league game against Varberg. Can we expect a winter transfer for this former Golden Eaglets star?
He shamed the critics who attacked his performance in the Europa League loss against Lyon with the match winning goal at Dundee to take champions Rangers to the top of the standings in Scotland. Aribo will most certainly play another major role in his club’s title defence this season.
After he got a goal and an assist in the League win over Millwall, ‘Seniorman’ came off the bench to provide the assist for the goal that salvaged a point for Leicester City at home against Burnley. Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers has insisted that whether as a starter or coming from the bench, Iheanacho has continued to make an impact for the team.
The giant Genk centre-forward has now scored nine goals in the Belgian league after his hat-trick against promoted Seraing at the weekend. It has been a most eventful September for the 27-year-old striker – he reached a milestone 50 goals for Genk and extended his contract at the Belgian club till June 2024. Not many will bet against him to still the Goal King of Belgium again.
The Napoli record signing has continued to fly high after a forgettable opening Serie A clash against Venezia where he saw red. He scored his fourth goal in the Italian league against Cagliari for Napoli to record their sixth straight win and return to the top of the table. He is certainly enjoying his football again and he now enjoys the confidence of both coach Luciano Spalletti and most importantly the team. Barring injury and loss of form, he should hit double digits in his second season in Serie A.
