Onazi Named in Africa Top Five


Nigeria and Lazio midfielder, Ogenyi Onazi, has been named in Africa’s top 5 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 named by France Football in the top 5 African stars.
The other players picked by France Football are Samuel Eto’o (Cameroun and Antalyaspor), Adlene Guediora (Algeria and Watford), Sambou Yatabare (Mali and Werder Bremen) and Islam Slimani (Algeria and Sporting Lisbon).
