News24 Glo Premier League team of the week

30 June 2015, 15:35

Lagos - News24 picks the 11 players that stood out in the match day 14 of the Glo Premier League.

Sani Haliru - Wikki Tourists

The former Kano Pillars man made series of stunning saves to deny Ifeanyi FC attackers as his side stole the three points in Sunday's encounter. More performances like this and he'll surely be part of the Super Eagles' home-based squad.

Alex Emenike - Enugu Rangers

The player put in a consistent show. It was a typically robust performance in the match against Sunshine Stars, he defended well and attacked when possible as Rangers looked to hit their opponents on the counter. His strike was crucial.

Emenike Onuoha - Wikki Tourists

Not many would have expected Wikki to come back from the match against Ifeanyi Uba FC with a point not to talk of three points, but that’s what they did, they picked the maximum points. With coach Abdul Maikaba fielding a back four missing, Emenike stood out in particular putting in a resilient display. The defender was more often than not always in the right place.

Oke Ogagotewho - Warri Wolves

Warri Wolves secured a point at the Nest of Champions with Oke marshaling the defense expertly and restricting the opponents to just a couple of chances. A good communicator for his side.

Zikiye Jonathan - Dolphins

The defender has been a regular in the Dolphins side since joining them. Was rarely beaten when defending one against one and had a good running battle with Pillars attackers. His late leveler turned out to be crucial for the Pride of Rivers.

Saleh Mohammed - Giwa FC

Showed willingness to attack whenever possible, particularly in the match where he created a couple of good chances for the Jos Elephants. One of his forays was rewarded with a goal. Was not overly troubled in his defensive duties either.

Ebere Odiche - Heartland FC

Odiche was at the heart of the action in the Naze Millionaires' 1-1 draw with Sharks. He always drove his team forward throughout the match at the Sharks Stadium.

Ezekiel Bassey - Enyimba FC

Created two assists and generally ran the game for the People's Elephants in their 2-0 victory over Nasarawa United. Knows when to slow down the tempo of the game or speed it up. He picked the perfect pass and put in a shift defensively. Pretty much the perfect all round winger.

Abdulazeez Awakan - Akwa United

It's good to assume that Awakan is starting to show his true potentials. Played the full ninety minutes in the home draw against Wolves, scoring the equaliser. Showed excellent movement throughout the match, drifting out into wide areas to create space and also dropped deep to support the midfield.

Muyiwa Lawal - Shooting Stars

''Kokoro'' grabbed his first goal of the NPFL season on Saturday in fitting style. His stunning free-kick showed his class and quality. The substitute was the creative spark behind most of 3SC's moves, with the Taraba defenders unable to handle his dribbling and close control. Makes you wonder what kind of player he could have been if injuries had not blighted his career.

Chukwudi Samuel - Wikki Tourists

The forward put in a good display at the Rojenny Stadium. A mobile striker, he is particularly good at drifting into wide areas and linking the play. Scored the all-important winner and put in a solid all round display.
