Nigeria Striker Onazi Makes Africa Best Five

Ogenyi  Onazi, Super Eagles midfielder, has been named in Africa’s top five stars for the past week by France Football magazine.

Onazi has struggled to pin down a first-team place at Italian club Lazio, but he grabbed a rare first-team appearance at the weekend when he scored in a 2-0 win over Empoli.

Last week, Nigeria youngster, Alex Iwobi, was also named by France Football in the top five African stars.

The other players picked by France Football are Samuel Eto’o (Cameroon and Antalyaspor), Adlene  Guediora (Algeria and Watford), Sambou Yatabare (Mali and Werder Bremen) and Islam Slimani (Algeria and Sporting Lisbon).
