Super Eagles players were in action for their respective clubs during the weekend.

Some were outstanding while some were far from impressive – Here is a rundown on how some of the country’s finest players performed during the weekend.

William Troost Ekong 5/10

The 25-year-old defender has been a regular starter for Udinese in Italy but Saturday’s game against Juventus was one to forget for him.

He was partly at fault for the first goal conceded by his team as he failed to tackle Mario Mandzukic before the Croatian finds Paulo Dybala with a great pass. The Argentine made no mistake in putting the ball to the net. The game ended 2-0 in Udinese’s defeat.

Kenneth Omeruo 8/10

The centre-back finally made his much-awaited debut for Leganes after replacing their injured player in the 29th minute of their 1-0 victory over Rayo Vallecano on Saturday.

Ola Aina 6/10

The former England youth international played 66 minutes of action in Torino’s 3-2 victory against Frosinone on Friday.

He wasn’t in his usual best, though, he offered much threat to the team while attacking. He must show more defensive alertness in the next game.
Ahmed Musa 10/10

The in-form speedy star was on the scoresheet for the third consecutive matches as he helped his Saudi Arabian League side Al-Nassr to a 5-1 win against Al-Hazm on Saturday.

The 25-year-old striker opened the scoring for the home side before providing two assists to ensure his team stretched their winning run to five games.

Leon Balogun

The former Hannover 96 defender was an unused substitute as Brighton narrowly defeated West Ham by a lone goal that was scored by Glenn Murray.

The CB has played just two matches for the Amex outfits since his free transfer to the team during the summer transfer market.
