SCORENIGERIA lists the top 5 Nigeria stars for the past week.
5. Chidera Ejuke
The former Valerenga of Norway star scored his second goal for Dutch club SC Heerenveen to salvage a draw at home with FC Utrecht. The winger is gradually justifying the two million Euros his Dutch club splashed on him in the summer.
4. Brown Ideye
The 30-year-old striker opened the scoring for Aris at champions PAOK in a thrilling 2-2 draw. It was his second goal in the Greek top flight since he got his career back on track after being in the doldrums for almost a year. He is a proven striker and he now looks good to continue to do so in a league he first stormed with his goals for Olympiacos.
3. Paul Onuachu
The giant striker netted his second goal in as many league starts for champions KRC Genk to continue their climb up the table after a rather indifferent start to the new season. The 3-1 home win over KV Oostende must have steadied a lot of frayed nerves at Genk after the battering they suffered in the UEFA Champions League.
2. Asisat Oshoala
The new Super Falcons captain has taken to Spanish football like duck to water and she underlined this with a brace in a 6-1 hammering of champions Atletico Madrid. Barcelona Ladies did a great piece of business when they signed the poster girl of Nigeria football and there is still a lot more to come from this girl from Ikorodu.
The former Golden Eaglets and Flying Eagles skipper is enjoying a new lease of life in La Liga after it seemed he had lost his way in Spain. His headed goal set promoted Granada CF off to a famous upset against champions Barcelona. It won’t be out of place for him to be recalled to the Super Eagles should he sustain such club form. His creativity in midfield is still missing in the Eagles.
