Nigerian Footballers did well for their respective clubs all over the world.
Who made it into the Team of the Week? Below are the best players after the latest round of games.
Maduka Okoye - Sparta Rotterdam
Okoye was superb, making five or six sensational saves as Sparta Rotterdam beat Fortuna Sittard in the Eredivisie. Superlative.
Calvin Bassey - Rangers
Bossed his wing allowing Rangers' more creative players to do their business while stopping St Johnstone's versions. His amazing engine keeps powering Gers. The left footer is picked at right back. Galvanizing.
Leon Balogun - Rangers
Getting back to his best and quietly efficient in the tackle. Helped drum St Johnstone right out the game and also made crucial challenges. Solid.
Semi Ajayi - West Bromwich Albion
Ajayi commanded the centre of defence and kept the Millwall attackers quiet while making some absolutely decisive blocks. Always ready to snuff out danger. Dominant.
Kingsley Madu - Trencin
Controlled the flank and scored the first goal against Zilina. Kept pressing and defended well. Dynamic.
Abdul Zubairu - Trencin
Another majestic performance from the Nigerian in midfield for Trencin as he provided two assists. Effective.
Obinna Nwobodo - Goztepe
Laid the foundations for the hosts. The mercurial Nigerian was everywhere. Showed his sublime ability with some sumptuous service, to set up several attacks. Transcendent.
Terem Moffi - Lorient
Scored and assisted in Lorient's 2-1 victory over Lille in the French Ligue 1. Reliable.
Anthony Nwakaeme - Trabzonspor
The ex Hapoel Beer Sheva star made a great impact as an attacker, scoring an outrageous goal against Galatasaray in the Turkish Super Lig. Crucial.
David Okereke - Venezia
The former Spezia youngster was here, there and everywhere and perfectly placed to register his first goal of the season. Caused problems upfront against Empoli. Untiring.
Odion Ighalo - Al Shabab
Ighalo was simply superlative and after three blocked killer shots he finally scored a brace in the 2-0 win over Al-Hazem. Sublime.
