Sunshine Stars’ spirited defeat of champions Enyimba has catapulted three of their players into the NPL’s Team of the Week.
Left back Daniel Mende, centre back Onyi Chiemeke and midfielder Cletus Itodo all played their way into the weekly honors list. Heartland and Ocean Boys followed with two players each.
But the star of the show is JUTH’s Ghanaian striker James Amankwei, who scored for the second week running, following his strike against Sharks in Week 1 with another in his side’s 1-1 draw against Gombe United.
Two players who missed out narrowly in the Week 1 list, forced their way into the second week’s selection. Ocean Boys goalkeeper Olufemi Thomas and Kano Pillars defender Wasiu Sowemimo both made up lost ground after missing out last week.
Once again, the team will be coached by Dolphins’ coach Stanley Eguma, whose team maintained their perfect start to the season.
