Lagos - After another exciting, extra extended Glo Premier
League round, News24 selects the best XI from Week 22.
Kept Sunshine Stars in the game with several top stops
including saving a penalty kick taken by Chibuzor Okonkwo in the first half.
Other superb moments saw him deny Okereke Maduabuchi and Ifeanyi Ede, which
helped keep a clean sheet and the point.
Chaona showed all awareness needed of a defender. He was at
his best, commanding and controlling when needed. It was an uncompromising
display from him.
On Monday the washing machine was making big noises and
after opening it up, out tumbled the motivated Adedeji. His crosses were

artistic performance saw him building up attacks with utter precision. Always
alert to the half chance, he perpetually pushed and probed. His attackers were
wasteful in front of goal.
Bolaji Sakin [Abia
The former Dolphins star buzzed and bugged the Pride of
Rivers, combining beautifully with Chisom Chikatara before breaking away and
bundling the ball home for the leveler.
Anyu Ishaya [Nasarawa
Was absolutely everywhere and seems to have settled in
immediately showing his worth with his runs while uniting superbly with his
team mates. His stock is fast growing.
Osadiaye linked excellently with his team mates and scored
the opening goal of the match against Giwa FC. He caused more confusion for the
Bobby Clement [Enugu
The former Heartland striker was on top form testing the
goalkeeper and continued to do so. His brilliant strike almost gave the Flying
