The Best And Worst of Nigerians Abroad Last Weekend

Several Super Eagles stars were in action last weekend for their clubs and we review their performances.

We look at the Nigerian Internationals who shines for their teams last weekend in top-tier matches and how they thrived.

Too Bad: Alex Iwobi

The Everton attacking midfielder has lately been making headlines for great performances when shining for Everton in the English Premier League.

Alex Iwobi endured one of his poorest ratings against Fulham after ending the match without an assist, shot, or goal. This comes after he performed brilliantly in Everton’s three goals thriller as they thrash Crystal Palace 3-0 in the previous game.

Too Good: William Troost-Ekong

Troost-Ekong continued exhibiting his excellence for Watford after playing the whole match in the 1-0 win against Wigan.

Joao Pedro netted the only goal in the game, but William Troost-Ekong oversaw the defensive strength adequately and ensured no setbacks occurred.

Too Bad: Taiwo Awoniyi

The striker aided the relegation-threatened team to silence Liverpool by netting the only goal of the game last week.

Nonetheless, he was totally out of his game against Arsenal as Nottingham Forest suffers a 5-0 loss at the Emirates Stadium.

Too Good: Victor Osimhen

The Nigeria international and Napoli goal machine yet again made his importance for Napoli clear after netting his first professional hat trick in the 4-0 league win against Sassuolo.

The forward now tops the top-scorers list with seven goals and an assist from the 8 matches.

Too Bad: Kelechi Iheanacho

The strikers started from the bench yet again as the Foxes hosted Manchester City on Saturday.

Iheanacho was introduced to the game in the 71st minute and despite influencing the team positively he was unable to save them from losing.

Too Good: Ademola Lookman

The Nigerian winger helped Atalanta to their 5th away Italian Serie A win this campaign with a goal in his side’s 2-0 win against Empoli.

Lookman has gone on flourishing this season and has scored five goals already.

The winger has assisted once as Atlanta continued their fine form.
