NPFL Team Of The Round 12
20 June 2015, 21:14
Abuja - News24 lists the team of the week for the match-day 12 of the Nigeria Professional Football League.
Okeogbo Ndubuisi [Elkanemi Warriors]
Stopping everything Sharks threw at him, he was especially alert to palm away efforts from Christian Pyagbara, Tayo Fabiyi, Fortune Omoniwari and Madu Chiamaka. Authoritative.
Ibukun Harrison [Akwa United]
He seems to have adapted very well to his position as a defender and worked tirelessly in the defence line. Never got as far forward as usual but had the discipline to stick to his role and kept Kwara United strikers at bay. Commanding.
Peter Ambrose [Wikki Tourists]
He led the line at the back with authority and snuffed out even the slightest danger from FC Taraba. Used his strength to rebuff their attacks and was not subtle about it either. Unyielding.
Kingsley Udoh [Sunshine Stars]
Dependable at the back, dangerous up front and scored the winning goal with a perfect finish. He was always a rock in defence. Excellent.
Yinka Adedeji [Shooting Stars]
Continually caused problems down the left flank yet never ignored his defensive duties. His contribution was exceptional.

Rabiu Ali [Kano Pillars]
The playmaker left the Giwa defence as inconclusive and erroneous as a FIFA summary. Put in a lot of effort, making retrievals and setting up attacks and scored two well taken spot-kicks. Exciting.
Enockela Akleche [Lobi Stars]
His constant running and probing opened up a sore point in the Nasarawa United defence. He scored a magnificent opener and was outstanding.
Ezekiel Bassey [Enyimba]
What can you say about the former Akwa United maestro that hasn’t been said before? Always creative and full of tricks. Impeccable.
Chisom Egbuchulam [Enugu Rangers]
The young winger smashed his way through the Abia Warriors defence time and time again. Playing blistering football, the games top man scored the winner the Flying Antelopes were looking for.
Adamu Mohammed [Kano Pillars]
Always busy and caused several problems. He scored a brace, the first a brilliant lob, the second from a goal-mouth scramble. Dangerous.
Godwin Obaje [Wikki Tourists] Like Frank Sinatra’s ‘My way’ at funerals, he was everywhere and produced a devastating performance. Continued to cause problems before stealing in for a perfect goal finding space and time to whip the ball home for his team's second goal. Tireless.
