Dessers Leads Attack; Chukwueze, Dennis In – Completesports.com Nigeria Team Of The Month (Nov. 2021)

In continuation of our monthly series, Completesports.com Nigeria Team Of The Month, this November 2021 edition highlights eleven standout Nigerian players who did very well for their respective clubs.

The month of November 2021 saw a lot of Nigerian football players raising their performances, impressing for their various clubs, in Europe and other parts of the world.



AFCON 2022 Zabira

Daniel Akpeyi (Kaizer Chiefs)

Daniel Akpeyi has continued to keep his spot in the Completeports.com Nigeria Team Of The Month, as the undisputed number one at South African Premier Soccer League (PSL) giants, Kaizer Chiefs.


He manned the posts in all five of Chiefs’ league games in November and helped them to three wins (one draw and one loss), as they now occupy second place in the league table.



Kevin Akpoguma (TSG Hoffenheim)

Hoffenheim were involved in three games in the whole of November and Kevin Akpoguma featured in all of them.

His contributions helped the Bundesliga club to record two wins while they suffered one loss. They currently occupy fifth place on the log which is an Europa League spot.

Chidozie Awaziem (Alanyaspor)

Despite only joining Turkish top flight side Alanyaspor in the summer, Chidozie Awaziem has remained a regular for the club.

He featured in all their three games in November where they won one game and lost two. Alanyaspor are still in the hunt for a place in Europe next season as they are in fifth position, just outside the qualification zone on goals difference.

Leon Balogun (Rangers)

Before being sidelined with injury, Leon Balogun maintained his place in the starting eleven of Rangers.

Out of the five games played in November he was involved in three and gave a good account of himself as Rangers still maintain top spot in the league standing.

Calvin Bassey (Rangers)

The 21-year-old has been a revelation for the reigning Scottish champions this season with his eye-catching displays.

Appearing in all five games played in the month in review, Calvin Bassey helped Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side to record three wins in November.


Joe Aribo (Rangers)

It was a memorable month for Joe Aribo who has turned out to be a super regular for the Scottish giants.

Aribo marked his impressive performance with two goals and one assist in five games played.

Wilfred Ndidi (Leicester City)

Since his return from injury, Wilfred Ndidi has picked up from where he stopped for the Foxes.

He was in action for Leicester in all of their fixtures in November and crowned his performance with a goal, in the Europa League win against Legia Warsaw, his first goal of the season.

Frank Onyeka (Brentford)

Another player who has continued to show his quality since his move to the Premier League is Frank Onyeka.

He made two appearances out of the three games Brentford played and helped them end their winless run in the league with the win against Everton.

He was unlucky not to open his goals account for Brentford as his strike against Newcastle, in the 3-3 draw was later awarded as an own goal.


Emmanuel Dennis (Watford)

It was a standout month for Emmanuel Dennis who continues to light up the Premier League since his arrival, and has hugely merited a sport in Completesports.com Nigeria Team of The Month for November 2021.

He was instrumental in the Hornets’ 4-1 thrashing of Manchester United as he scored a goal and had two assists. He followed it up with another goal in their 4-2 loss to Leicester.

Samuel Chukwueze (Villarreal)

Samuel Chukwueze made five appearances for Villarreal last month and was outstanding.

He scored two goals, one of them against Barcelona, which saw him maintain his impressive home scoring form against the Laliga heavyweights.

Cyriel Dessers (Feyenoord)

The Belgian-born Nigerian striker had one of his best months for Feyenoord in November as he netted four goals in five games to earn this berth in our November Team Of The Month.

He scored all his goals as a second half substitute.

  • Martins 2 months ago

    I like this eagle selection only akpeyi I doubt

  • MONKEY POST 2 months ago

    Okay Good.

  • Funny. If Mr rohr I to pick his first eleven today, only three will make rhe first team. Rohr the joker.

  • Abdul Handsy 2 months ago

    The attacking force of this team is a menace to any national team of this world!

    It baffles me how on Earth Gernot ignoring the likes of Taiwo Awoniyi,Calvin Bassey, Emmanuel Dennis and Cyriel kolawole Dessers for guys like Onuachu, ighalo, Simon and shehu..

    These guys ain’t happy when the news broke that Rohr may kiss super eagles job bye as they know very well that no right thinking coach will come and make them part of the team ahead those performing week in and out mentioned players…

  • MONKEY POST 2 months ago

    Can you guys just comment without mentioning Rohr’s name? This is just CSN team of the Month for November. They are judged based on their club form and performance for the month. Don’t worry when it gets to Afcon proper in January then in February when it must have been over you can ask Mr Rohr to come up with his super eagles Afcon team of that month which it was played then you can start nagging from there…what CSN has done is quite an easy pick. Anybody can do it even without those without coaching experience or football minds. It is Not surprising. Cos we all knew those who were on top form with their various clubs. So calling out Rohr for things like this is really not necessary. I mean what do you guys take him for? A dummy??? Come on meh…

  • pompei 2 months ago

    Good job, CSN. Nice selection.
    I would love to see a list of subs. I wish to see Amoo on that list, ready to come in if needed.
    I also feel the Akpeyi selection is not as bad as it looks. But with the Israel boy Adeleye invited, I feel he should get the nod. However, Akpeyi’s experience is valuable at this time.

    • Mahmud Shuaib 2 months ago

      Why I come dey gbadun you these days despite openly disagreeing with you on many occasions previously?

      Just like @Abdul Handsy another ROHR ardent supporter turned objective commentator, your balanced comments nowadays are a delight to read for me bro @POMPEI.

      ROHR is holding our potentials back. This team as it is will beat CP, CAR, LIBERIA, SL etc hands down.

      And to think we have players not here like OSIMHEN, EKONG, AINA, SANUSI, OKOYE etc tells the story.

      Honestly, with more sound coaching, we should be in the mix for AFCON glory and WC quarter finals.

  • Footballfanatic 2 months ago

    Nice list first time I’d commend CSN….. very objective this time.

  • Akanlo Ede 2 months ago

    Why is Alex Iwobi not on this list na? Lolzzzz.

    • Edoman 1 month ago

      Where is Amoo in this list????????. The list is not complete. Take it back.

  • Please monkey post. You need to keep quiet. Why are you still supporting rohr despite all his mishaps. The man just simply needs to go. Period

  • MONKEY POST 2 months ago

    Now you all can see that by my satisfaction of this team by CSN you all can agree with me that I don’t make opinions base on sentiment. Even complete Sport too is a credible platform.(some of you question their credibility when they did the best of Ighalo) I mean I remember questioning the introduction of Ahmed Musa calling him old pussy when instead of chukwueze or ejuke Rohr brought him on in the cape Verde game. So this is a vindication…

  • pompei 2 months ago

    The change I would suggest is to move Aribo higher up, to the hole behind the striker, in a 4-2-3-1 formation. That is where we will get the best out of him.
    Akpoguma, Awaziem, Balogun, Bassey
    Onyeka, Ndidi
    Dennis, Aribo, Chukwueze
    We can also do a 4-4-2, with Dennis joining Dessers up front, and Aribo moving to the right wing. He also excels there for Rangers.
    Akpoguma, Awaziem, Balogun, Bassey
    Aribo, Onyeka, Ndidi, Chukwueze
    Dennis, Dessers
    I like the idea of playing Chukwueze on the left wing. The wingers can switch wings from time to time, as needed.
    Ndidi and Onyeka will lock down the midfield.
    Aina might get the nod ahead of Akpoguma in the right back position, or ahead of Bassey in the left back position. He also did very well in November at Torino.
    Amoo and Ejuke should be subbed in later to keep the fire burning in the attack. These 2 are also good enough to start. This is good for Nigeria. Good to have subs that are as good as the starters in the team.

    • Obazee 2 months ago

      Abeg don’t waste your time with Rohn around these people you mentioned will never be invited or if invited they will b dumped on the bench. The coach has his favorite already. The likes of Solomon kale, Moses Simeon, Shehu and Musa will always figure in his list despite their form. It is on record that Solomon Kalu beg to be excused because Rohn was bent on putting him in his list in the last super eagles outing. With Rohn still around we should forget the façon. Nothing new will come out of him. Because you cannot give what you don’t have.

    • Mahmud Shuaib 2 months ago

      Sublimely posited sir.

      Just the right tactics and we are good to go.

      For Afcon barring injuries, I will do this 11:




  • pompei 2 months ago

    Of course, if guys like Vic Moses, Ejaria, and Lookman show up, then things may have to change 🙂
    Akpoguma, Awaziem, Balogun, Bassey
    Moses, Ndidi, Ejaria, Lookman
    Dennis, Dessers
    The next step is to fill the team with subs that are just as good as the starting eleven.
    If we accomplish that, Afcon trophy loading…..

  • MONKEY POST 2 months ago

    If Victor Moses was still with us, he would have made the list. Then chukwueze on the sub. We need a hot bench too. And please CSN the team for December should come with a bench/sub too. Hot bench too just like the ones on the pitch. Not just anyhow players just for the purpose of having a sub team.. please look deeply. The bench must have performed well to in that month

  • MONKEY POST 2 months ago

    Solomon kalu??What kind of scandal are you trying to bring on rohr. Nigga Watch what you type before you get your ass sued

  • Akanlo Ede 2 months ago

    Only deserving Super Eagles players should be invited. Lolzzzz

  • Dennis can play and attack from the wings, which will take some pressure off the main striker. He is good at finding the forward players judging by the number of assists he has provided.
    I say play him on either left or right. If Victor moses is returning then he should attack from the left wing with moses attacking from the right. Then we can have taiwo awoniyi as the striker upfront or any of dessers or sadiq. Sounds good. Looks good too. Lets see what the Super Eagles handlers make of it.

    • Charles O Ukattah 2 months ago

      I join in saying that we have a pool of talented players to choose from in all departments, that a coach with sublime style of play can use & capture not only the Afcon, but the World Cup as well. I suggest the following:

      1. Manuka Okoye
      2. Chidozie Awaziem
      3. Jamilu Collins
      4. Troost Ekong
      5. Calvin Basset
      6. Wilfred Ndidi
      7. Joe Aribo
      8. Ademola Lookman
      9. Sam Chukwueze
      10. Taiwo Awoniyi
      11. Emmanuel Dennis

      Reserve Bench
      12. Francis Uzoho
      13. Leon Balogun
      14. Ola Aina
      15. Kevin Akpoguma
      16. Moses Simon
      17. Alex Iwobi
      18. Cyriel Dessers
      19. Kelechi Iheanacho
      20. Chidera Ejuke
      21. Odion Ighalo
      22. Ahmed Musa
      23. Frank Onyeka

    Thanks Mahmud Shuaib. We may have different opinions, but we are all seeking the same thing. We all want the SE to be successful.
    I am an SE supporter. I supported Rohr because he is the coach, and he was doing fantastic at first. But unfortunately, performance levels have dropped, and as an SE fan, I feel the need to criticize constructively. I partially blame Rohr for this performance slump, but I will apportion the lion share of the blame to NFF.
    Signing a ridiculous contract with Rohr with a crazy severance package, constant player interference, unpaid salaries and bonuses, outrageous pitches, poor player healthcare and welfare, wanton corruption, and so on. These issues are all from NFF, and are the main reason Rohr and the SE have struggled of recent.
    Sacking Rohr is only a stop gap solution. The real solution is fixing the NFF.
    Hopefully Mahmud, Rohr will sit up and start performing again. If he is no longer able to do that, then we have to say our goodbyes, and look for a competent coach to replace him. But herein lies the problem. It is this same incompetent, inept NFF that will be saddled with the task of getting us a new coach!
    We’re asking our biggest problem to solve a smaller problem that our biggest problem facilitated! How can problem solve problem?
    Nothing will work in the long term until we find a solution to THE ENEMY WITHIN, OUR BIGGEST PROBLEM NFF ONIGBESE.

    We should also include Destiny Udogie who plays for Udinese. He is a good young player and has been consistent in Serie A.

  • Edoman 1 month ago

    Super Eagle without chidera Ejuke in the first eleven won’t fly. Adeleke is the number one goal-keeper or Salah will make meat of super chickens.
