Glo League team of the round 25

25 August 2015, 10:10

Lagos - News24 select the best 11 players who were exceptional in the Glo Premier League week 25 fixtures.

Kazeem Yekeen [Kwara United]

The former Bayelsa United goalie was on form and Shooting Stars were left frustrated by his heroics. They found goals harder to come by than truffles in a thousand-acre woodland. He made three saves on one-on-one situations and also stopped Tope Orelope's spot-kick. In the second half he saved several goal-worthy efforts; especially a free-kick from Muyiwa Lawal in the injury time.

Chigozie Ihunda [Dolphins FC]

Like a young barber cutting the hair of the Roma homeless via the Pope's blessing, he was an optimistic volunteer and played well. Comprehensive in attack and defence, he crucially cut out the dangerous Rangers attackers.

Abdulbasit Shittu [Nasarawa United]

Played a captain's game by leading at the back. Controlled Pillars' attackers with relative ease. The former Giwa FC defender did well to retain his composure when Pillars were dominating and pushing for a vital equalizer. He made a couple of well-timed clearances that would have surely otherwise resulted in goals.

Olalekan Gabriel [Sharks FC]

Controlled the centre of the pitch, protecting his goalkeeper with several decisive interventions later in the match. Never allowed the opposition forwards any hold on the game and played solidly throughout.

Lawal Shittu [Giwa FC]

Another classic performance from the full back. Added to the attack while also commanding the left flank, making sure the hosts made no headway down his side.

Paul Onobi [Sunshine Stars]     

The defensive midfielder caused Elkanemi Warriors plenty of problems and his first half strike set the ball rolling in the massacre. He added a second in the second half. Always a threat he put on a man of the match performance.

Kingsley Sokari [Enyimba FC]

Kept the away side busy, creating problems in the heart of their defence. Always looking to generate something; his guile played a big part in helping Enyimba grab three points.

Yaro Bature [Nasarawa United]

Was always there to receive the ball, taking risks and looking for openings. He found space for himself after he was spotted by Ubale to score the second goal in Kano.

Abubakar Salmon [Kwara United]

Playing on the right the Kwara Feeders product caused problems and his perfect shot was spilled to the path of Ismail Gata who scored the only goal of the match. He continued to be a positive influence and saw his thunderous strike hit the woodwork in the second half.

Mannir Ubale [Nasarawa United]

A top performance, he pushed for a goal and was rewarded for his hard work when he scored the first goal before setting up Yaro Bature for his team's second goal against his former employers.

Prince Aggrey [Sunshine Stars]

As usual he was a thorn in the backside of the opposition as he launched himself at everything like a love-struck teenager. His first goal was brilliant while he also occupied the defenders for his second goal.
