Sani Emmanuel Nominated For African Footballer Of The Week By MTN!!

My People FC’s Sani Emmanuel has been nominated as one of the five African footballers of the week by MTN Football following his blistering performance against Argentina for Nigeria’s cadet team, the Golden Eaglets. Emmanuel scored the winner for Nigeria, a goal that saw the Eaglets soar through to the next round of the ongoing FIFA U-17 World Cup at the top of their group.

My People FC's Sani Emmanuel - nominated for African player of the week

As can be seen on the MTN Footballl website, the five players nominated are:

Obafemi Martins
Martins had been on something of a goal-drought having scored just once in nine matches for the German champions Wolfsburg, but hit back with a brace against Mainz on Saturday. It was still not enough for his side to win, as they conceded an equaliser in the last three minutes to end the day at 3-3.

Bobo Balde
Veteran Guinea defender Bobo Balde made his first Ligue 1 start for Valenciennes on Saturday and put in a Man of the Match performance as his side claimed an excellent 3-0 away win at Stade Rennes. Balde spent the previous eight seasons at Glasgow Celtic in Scotland, though the weekend’s start was his first competitive club fixture since May last year, and just his second appearance in total.

Aruna Dindae
No English Premiership goals in five games for Cote d’Ivoire striker Aruna Dindane had many wondering whether Portsmouth boss Paul Hart had done the right thing in bringing him to the Fratton Park strugglers. But the Ivorian hit back in spectacular style with a hat-trick, the last a penalty which he earned, as Pompey finally won at home in the League with a 4-0 thumping of Wigan Athletic.

Jean Makoun
The Cameroon international midfielder won rave reviews for his performance in the 1-0 away win at Saint Etienne on Saturday, earning a place in the Team of the Week from respected French publication L’Equipe.

Sani Emmanuel
The substitute held his nerve to score from the penalty-spot as the hosts Nigerians claimed a crucial win over Argentina at the 2009 FIFA Under-17 World Cup on Friday. Having earlier missed a good chance to seal the game for his side, Emmanuel was a picture of calmness as he stroked home the vital spot-kick to put his side into the Last 16.

You can make your vote for Emmanuel on the MTN Football Website!

With Nigerias next encounter against New Zealand scheduled to take place on Thursday, people are expectant that Emmanuel will once again be on the field and get his name on the scoresheet…!
