Two Nigeria-Born Players Made The Major League Soccer ‘Team Of The Week’

There are just two months left until the 2019 Major League Soccer season comes to an end. Looking back at performances last week, the league has released a list of players who made the ‘Team of the Week‘, and it features two Nigeria-born players: Ike Opara and Nedum Onuoha.

A defender, Opara plays for Minnesota United. Last week, he helped the club to a 1-0 win over Colorado Rapids. This year alone, the 30-year-old has been chosen for the ‘Team of the Week’ an impressive seven times. No wonder experts are already tipping him for the ‘Defender of the Year’ award.

Warri-born Nedum Onuoha plays as a defender for Real Salt Lake. This is the third time the 32-year-old is making the ‘Team of the Week’ this season. He earned a spot on the list due to his stellar form during his club’s 3-0 win over Seattle Sounders last Thursday.

The two players were listed alongside 2019 FIFA Puskás award nominee, Zlatan Ibrahimović.
