Glo Premier League Team of the Week 22

12 August 2015, 11:43

Lagos - After another exciting, extra extended Glo Premier League round, News24 selects the best XI from Week 22.

Ikechukwu Ezenwa [Sunshine Stars]

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.

Mohammed Chaona [Sunshine Stars]

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.

Yinka Adedeji [Shooting Stars]

On Monday the washing machine was making big noises and after opening it up, out tumbled the motivated Adedeji. His crosses were sublime and his free-kick to spot Cletus Itodo was brilliant.

Alaba Osawe [Shooting Stars]

Another authoritative performance at the back making every tackle count while clearing the ball and generally subjugating Heartland's attacking arm. Had a battle on his hands controlling Fortune Omoniwari but he was fine.

Bala Mohammed [Kano Pillars]

What a way to repay the faith and trust in him by coach Baba Ganaru. The experienced libero was the key man at the back four, as he controlled affairs and netted a wonderful equaliser for the reformed Pillars.

Isiaka Olawale [Dolphins]

Very exotic, his all-round classy display resulted in him netting his side's only goal and coming close to grabbing the winner from a free-kick. He was always menacing to the visiting defence like a falcon on bate.

Augustine Oladapo [FC Ifeanyi Uba]

Like a staircase designed and built by Scarpagnino, his 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 Warriors]

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 United]

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.

Joseph Osadiaye [Warri Wolves]

Osadiaye linked excellently with his team mates and scored the opening goal of the match against Giwa FC. He caused more confusion for the hosts.

Bobby Clement [Enugu Rangers]

The former Heartland striker was on top form testing the goalkeeper and continued to do so. His brilliant strike almost gave the Flying Antelopes three maximum points but Christian Pyagbara rescued the home team with an injury time equaliser.
