Super Eagles striker Sylvester Igboun has been named to the Team of the Week after the latest round of matches played in the Russian Premier League.

In a 4-4-2 formation, the Nigeria national-teamer started in a four-man midfield which also contained Nikola Vlasic (CSKA Moscow), Ismael (FK Akhmat) and Mario Fernandes (CSKA Moscow).
Igboun made his presence felt against Rubin Kazan, with a game-high three shots on target and three key passes, and had the highest number of successful dribbles with four take-ons completed.
This season, Igboun, who first made his name at Danish champions FC Midtjylland, has scored 4 goals in 16 appearances in all competitions, while providing two assists.
