ABZ looks at the biggest performing Nigerians in the world of football at the weekend, including the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL), and below are the selected Naija superstars who stood out over the weekend.
Joseph Ayodele Aribo | The London-born midfielder is in superb scoring form, as he hit his league goal number six in Rangers’ 2-0 win over Hearts. The 25-year-old scored a glorious goal, pulling an excellent Connor Goldson ball out of the air before finishing brilliantly beyond Craig Gordon.
Dennis Emmanuel | The Abuja-born forward has continued where he left off, proving why he’s the most important Watford’s player. In their 2-1 loss to Brentford, Dennis scored the Hornet’s only goal, taking his tally to 7 goals in the Premier League.
Samuel Chukwueze | The Umuahia-born hit a milestone in Villarreal’s 2-0 win over Rayo Vallecano. Chukwueze featured for 30 minutes in the clash, and he became a centurion, his 100th La Liga game for the Yellow Submarine.
