Nigeria Professional Football League team of round 11

16 June 2015, 10:01

Abuja - News24 picks the individual performers of the match-day 11 and puts them together in the team of the week. Take a look and see if you agree.

Chijioke Ejiogu [Enyimba International FC]

Made a handful of crucial saves and especially alert stopping two strong efforts late in the match against Wikki Tourists. Not frightened to come off his line and claim high balls and it's thanks to him the People's Elephants grabbed a point. Arugo Monkey was decisive.

Odinga [Sharks FC]

Like an avalanche of molten metal sliding down the Alps, the evergreen defender wiped out any Dolphins advances.

Ibrahim Ibrahim [Nasarawa United]

Had the upper hand throughout and completely annulled the whole of Akwa United's attack and scored an early goal with his head. Like the power of electricity, he wired to various parts of the anatomy and his tackles were effective. Electrifying.

Semiu Liadi [Warri Wolves]

Another mountainous display from Semiu, who cleared, headed away or made crucial tackles when needed. Alert until the end. Volcanic.

Chinedu Efugh [Heartland FC]

Chicago was always busy, producing a steely defensive performance for the Naze Millionaires. His marking from the zones was superb.

Dare Ojo [Kwara United]

Another muscular performance by the midfielder who pushed, probed and in general played a 35-metre blinder which caught goalkeeper Itodo Akor napping. Not that the defence needed much help but he was always alert to any counter-attacks while his forward movement was sensational. Breathtaking.

Anthony Abawula [Bayelsa United]

He patrolled the area like a restless wolf keeping any advances from Heartland right down to a minimum when he was introduced in the second half. He also got forward on many occasions, scoring a screamer for the Restoration Army.

Chisom Chikatara [Abia Warriors]

The ''Kolanut Boy'' turned the game around with a crucial winner for the hosts against Sunshine Stars, grabbing hold of the attack, he inspired his teammates, scoring his first before keeping his cool to net the winner from the penalty spot. Precious.
