Paris - Victor Wanyama -- the only Kenyan playing in a major
European football league -- scored his first goal for Tottenham Hotspur in a
1-0 weekend victory over Crystal Palace.
The former Celtic midfielder struck eight minutes from time
to give Spurs their first English Premier League win of the season after an
opening-weekend draw at Everton.

VICTOR WANYAMA (Tottenham Hotspur)
Kenya international Wanyama scored his first goal since
joining Tottenham in an 11 million pounds ($14.4 million, 12.7 million euros)
move from Southampton to give Mauricio Pochettino's men a 1-0 home win over
Crystal Palace. The former Celtic player struck in the 82nd minute at White
Hart Lane, flying in to head the ball home from close range after Harry Kane
flicked on a corner.
KELECHI IHEANACHO (Manchester City)
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola praised Iheanacho last
week, saying that he has "something special in the box", and the
20-year-old Nigerian forward made an immediate impact off the bench in his
side's 4-1 win at Stoke City. Iheanacho replaced double goal-scorer Sergio
Aguero in the 83rd minute and set up Nolito for City's third goal just three
minutes later, skipping around Stoke goalkeeper Shay Given and squaring the
ball to the Spaniard for a tap-in.
YANNICK BOLASIE (Everton)
Bolasie made a positive impression on his debut for new club
Everton in their 2-1 win at West Bromwich Albion. A 25 million pounds signing
from Crystal Palace last week, the Democratic Republic of Congo winger came on
for Gerard Deulofeu in the 61st minute and almost created a goal with an
exquisite cross from the right that Ross Barkley headed wide.
AHMED MUSA (Leicester City)
Despite an encouraging full debut in Leicester's 2-1 opening
defeat at Hull City, Nigerian striker Musa found himself on the bench for the
visit of Arsenal. But he almost delivered victory for the champions after
coming on in the 87th minute. Shortly after his entrance, he appeared to be
tripped by Hector Bellerin after bursting into the Arsenal box from the left,
but to the Leicester fans' great frustration, referee Mark Clattenburg waved

MOHAMED SALAH (Roma)
The Egypt striker completed a 4-0 rout of Udinese in the
Italian capital by scoring from close range with six minutes left. Pacey Salah
posed a constant threat and a second-half foul on him led to a penalty which
was converted for a two-goal advantage.
GIOVANNI SIO (Rennes)
The France-born Ivory Coast striker got off the mark for the
campaign with the second goal as Rennes -- now coached by former Algeria boss
Christian Gourcuff -- beat promoted Nancy 2-0.
STEVE MOUNIE (Montpellier)
The Benin striker, 21, scored his first Ligue 1 goal to put
Montpellier in front away to Saint-Etienne before the home side came back to
win 3-1. Mounie is looking to prove himself at the top level after scoring 11
goals on loan at Nimes in the second tier last season.
FLORENTIN POGBA (Saint-Etienne)
Pogba played all 90 minutes for Les Verts against
Montpellier. The Guinea defender, who turned 26 on Friday, did so with his
brother Paul, the Manchester United and France midfielder and the world's most
expensive player, watching from the stands at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard.For
