News24’s Glo Premier League Team of the Week 20

04 August 2015, 20:32

Lagos - Last weekend, the Glo Premier League entered the round 20. The formation chosen by News24 for the Team of the Week is a 4-3-3 system.

Emmanuel Iwu [Heartland FC]

The young goal tender ensured his side kept a clean sheet and helped his team to a 0-0 draw against Wikki Tourists. Made three point-blank saves towards the end of the match in Bauchi.

Odinga Odinga [Sharks FC]

The full back helped his side to a 2-1 victory over Warri Wolves. He tested defensively and wasn't contented with his defensive duties. He attacked when needed.

Chinonso Udeh [FC Taraba]

Chinonso was calm and helped his side earn a crucial victory against Sunshine Stars, keeping a clean sheet in the process. It was a positive performance from the defender who repelled them.

Salomon Junior [Bayelsa United]

He may not be the quickest but Salomon Junior is a pretty effective defender. Has good positional sense and seems to enjoy the challenge of coming up against physical strikers. Also managed to get on the score sheet.

Ike ThankGod [Abia Warriors]

The rocky defender put in a typically solid performance and helped his side earn a draw against Ifeanyi Uba FC. He showed why he is one of the best in the land.

Chinedu Udeagha [Enugu Rangers]

It’s been a surprisingly poor season so far for the midfielder but against Enyimba he looked to be getting some form back. Was heavily involved during the match in Aba.

Rabiu Ali [Kano Pillars]

Showed tactical awareness and understanding that gave Lobi Stars series of problems. Playing as a holding midfielder he made a number of interventions and recovery runs to help keep the Pride of Benue at bay for the majority of the match. The Nigeria international scored the first goal of the match for his team.

Ifeanyi Matthew [Elkanemi Warriors]

An impressive display from the midfielder. Played a largely defensive role as his side looked to play a counter attacking game in their match with Shooting Stars, but was also instrumental in starting moves and carrying the ball forward. Very good at winning the ball from Shooting Stars midfielders and deceptively quick when running with it.

Aniekpeno Udoh [Akwa United]

A constant threat to the Bayelsa United defense. Dropped deep to initiate attacks for his side and also looked to run in beyond the Restoration Boys backline. Scored a last-gasp equalizer for his team goal.

Charles Henlong [Giwa FC]

The skipper ran his socks off for his side against Kwara United, pressing the Harmony Warriors defence line whenever he got the chance and holding up the ball well. Was rewarded for his endeavour with the solitary goal of the game.

Ifeanyi Egwim [Dolphins FC]

Egwim was the star of the round. Dolphins' man for goals on match day scored a treble. He reacted sharply to a pass from Omoh Johnson before netting the equalizer for the Pride of Rivers. The fair skinned forward poked home from a rebound for his second goal. He completed his hat-trick two minutes to the hour mark.
