Nigerian international, Sylvester Igbohun has been named in the Russian Premier Liga Team of the Week for round six following his superb performance for FK UFA in their 2-0 win over Rostov, reports.


The 28-year-old, who was yet to find the net in his previous five league outings, ended the run in style as he scored in either half to lift his side to just their second win of the season.


The Nigerian was joined on the best XI for the week by teammate Aleksandr Putsko who impressed in the heart of defence with former Chelsea winger Andre Schurrle also making the cut.


Igbohun finished the week with a game rating of 8.1 which was only bettered by the duo of Aleksandr Sobolev 8.4 and Samuel Gigot who finished on 8.9 to claim the best player of the week.


The former FC Midtjylland forward will now be hoping to improve on the nine goals he scored last season with UFA to clinch a European slot at the end of the season.
