MFM FC Striker Nominated For CNN Goal Of The Week Award [WATCH]


Lord! thank heavens this was captured on camera, ‘cos it seems not all NPFL matches are captured live. Thanks to SuperSport and DSTV, now we don’t only have a Nigerian contender for CNN Goal of the Week, but also for FIFA Puskas Award for 2017. Whew, what a waawu goal!

MFM FC striker, Sikiru Olatubosun thunderous goal against Rangers international has been shortlisted for the CNN Goal of the week Award

Sikiru’s nomination t is very noteworthy as no goal from the Nigeria Professional Football League have been ever shortlisted for this coveted honour despite the fact that a few Nigerians like Kelechi Iheanacho have been named and even won the valued goal award

As at the time of documenting this report, Olatubosun is well in front of the other nominees

Olatubosun got heads turning when he marvelled with his superb strike against Enugu Rangers on Friday night at the Agege Stadium.

A nice backheel flick from MFM FC player puts the ball comfortable on his Olatunbosun comfortable feet, he wastes no time and gives it a chance to bounce once before flicking it over Rangers defender and afterwards rifling a long-run volley into the back of the net.

Want our very own NPFL player to win the CNN Goal of the week? why not support Olatunbosun and cast your vote for him @

Watch the goal here:

  1. Who says “nothing good CANNOT come out of Nigeria”?
    Let’s ALWAYS think about, reason, talk of and believe in POSITIVE things about/ of Nigeria.
    After all, we Nigerians have NO other Country that we can CLAIM as being our own, EXCEPT NIGERIA ( and, in fact, Nigeria ) ONLY.
    I am VERY OPTIMISTIC that Nigeria will get better; it’s JUST a question of some VERY, VERY FEW years from now.
    We ALL MUST play our individual, POSITIVE/ PATRIOTIC ROLE( S ) wherever we find ourselves, and at ALL TIMES.
