Nigerian international, Sylvester Igbonu was rewarded for his fantastic performance last weekend in Dynamo Moscow’s 2-3 loss at home to Sochi as he earned a spot on Team of the Week, reports.


The 29-year-old, who recently joined the club from another Russian outfit FC UFA, started his second game for the Moscow based club, scoring both in the 50th and 63rd minute to put his side 2-1 up before the visitors hit back with two late goals to snatch all three points.


The Nigerian was deservedly named the man of the match with an impressive game rating of 9.1 and leads the attack line alongside Artem Dzuba of Zenith St. Petersburg with four of his other teammates making the list following their impressive display in their 5-0 thrashing of Rubin Kazan.


Igbonu has featured in eight games this season for both UFA and Dynamo with four goals to his name as he hopes to better last season’s tally of nine.
