Yobo shines, Oboabona scores second own goal

Joseph Yobo

Super Eagles captain Joseph Yobo showed  his class again as he helped  Norwich beat Tottenham  1-0  at Carrow Road on Sunday to  dent  their visitors’  top-four hopes.

Yobo, who joined Norwich on loan from Turkish side Fenerbahce in the January transfer window, combined with Sebastian Bassong to stop Tottenham’s attack led by Emmanuel Adebayor.

But Eagles defender Godfrey Oboabona  scored his second own goal  on his return for his struggling  club, Rizespor,  in their  2-0  defeat  by  Bursaspor in the Turkish Premier League  on Saturday.

The 2013 Africa Cup of Nations winner, who had been  out of action for a month, shot into his own net in the 67th minute.

However, Oboabona Eagles’ defensive partner  Kenneth Omeruo started his second match for his  English Championship side Middlesbrough in their goalless draw at home  with Leeds United on Saturday.

Efe Ambrose was on the pitch  for 90 minutes as  Celtic won away at Hearts to remain on top of the Scottish Premier League. The defender has been in excellent form for the club.

Elderson Echiejile was not listed by  Monaco as they won 3-2 at home against Reims in France. The Eagles left-back  has yet to play a league match for the club since joining them from Sporting Braga of Portugal in January.

Victor Anichebe was a super substitute as he provided the assist for West Brom’s 86th minute equalising goal against struggling Fulham at home on Saturday.

Osaze Odemwingie played for 90 minutes and was impressive as his Stoke City lost 1-0 to Manchester City.

Uche Nwofor was an unused substitute when  Herenveen drew  0-0 with NEC Brada  in their Dutch  league game on Saturday.

John Ogu continued on the bench in Portugal as he was not listed by Academica Combria for Saturday’s 0-0 draw at home against Nacional.

Austin Ejide started  for Hapoel Beér Sheva in their  2-1 home win over Bnei Sakhin  in the Israeli Premier League on Saturday.

Michael Uchebo saw 74 minutes of action in Belgium as Cercle Brugge beat Mechelen 3-2 on Saturday.
