Players did well to enhance their reputation at the weekend.
Here is the Nigeria Team of the week which is deployed in the usual 4-4-2 formation. Let us know your thoughts.
Adeleye Adebayo - Hapoel Jerusalem
Adeleye's saves almost handed Hapoel Jerusalem a point against Maccabi Tel Aviv. His stops to deny Eduoardo Guerrero, Gavriel Kanichowsky, Luis Hernández and Stipe Perica were the standouts. The youngster wasn't at fault for Guerrero's winner.
Godswill Ekpolo - Hacken
Started off slowly but then put in an uncompromising performance and scored from Tebo Franklin's assist before half-time.
Leon Balogun - Rangers
Comfortably dealt with any Hibernian players that tried to beat him and occasionally advanced forward from defence. The former Brighton and Hove Albion star gave a good account of himself.
William Troost-Ekong - Watford
Superb in his positional play and distribution, he was also competently organising his defence with confidence. He wasn't at fault for Leeds United's winner at Elland Road.
Tyrone Ebuehi - Venezia
The inspiration for Venezia's 1-1 draw at Cagliari. Ebuehi offered an attacking outlet whenever the opportunity arose.
Afeez Aremu - St. Pauli
Was important in both destroying opposition play and the construction of Dynamo Dresden attacks. The former IK Start man was rewarded with full 90 minutes action.
Frank Onyeka - Brentford
Provided flair and energy as well as drive from midfield as Brentford shocked West Ham United in London.
Taiwo Awoniyi - Union Berlin
A peerless performance from Awoniyi. He inspired Union Berlin's comeback at Mainz with a brace.
Blessing Eleke - Genclerbirligi
Scored a brace and caused problems for the opposition with his electric performance. The striker is beginning to fulfil his true potentials.
Kelechi Iheanacho - Leicester City
The Foxes might have drawn with Crystal Palace, but Iheanacho scored a well-taken goal in the thriller. Senior Man is on fire.
Michael Olise - Crystal Palace
Olise performed well and did not squander his opportunity when he thrown into the fray against Leicester City. Scored a goal for Palace.
