NPFL Team of the Week 14


With several “imponderable elements” over the weekend in the Nigeria Professional Football League, Ademetan Abayomi selects his best XI from Week 14’s action.


Amas Obasogie (Bendel Insurance)

From the start he had to be alert. Afterwards his succession of superb saves and blocks the Benin Arsenal picked a draw against Enyimba. Exceptional.

Etboy Akpan (Akwa United)

The U23 international pushed up field all game, ending up almost as a winger. Unafraid to put in the right tackle at the right time. Unyielding.

Musa Abdullahi (Wikki Tourists)

Never put a foot out of place and played a more than solid game in central defence. Worked well and grabbed the winning goal.

Akpos Adubi (Rangers)

With a correct pass percentage of 68 per cent plus seven clearances and four solid tackles, the defender certainly kept the opposition very quiet. Notable.

Odinaka Edeh (Delta Force)

Edeh made several eye-catching runs, key passes. Inspiring.

Wasiu Jimoh (Rivers United)

The man of the match with some clever passes and a well crafted free kick.

Issa Gata (Wikki Tourists)

Gata scored once and regally over-powered the opposition as Wikki Tourists edged Remo Stars. His only goal of the game was a sweet curler.

Weli Christian (Rivers United)

Yet another iterative performance from Weli, who was unstoppable. He was very positive for the Pride of Rivers.

Gambo Mohammed (Kano Pillars)

In a tough game against Elkanemi Warriors, the striker triumphed with the opener. Impressive.

Sikiru Alimi (Lobi Stars)

The goal poacher had another top game, scoring once at home to his former team Sunshine Stars. At one point, he was unstoppable.

Thomas Adesina (Nasarawa United)

The forward scored the solitary goal. Always on the shoulder of the last defender he pushed and used his strength to continually hustle the opposition. Invincible.
