By James Agberebi:

Nigeria and Torino midfielder Joel Obi has been included in the Serie A Team of the Week compiled by facts and statistics website on Monday.

Obi’s inclusion was as a result of his impressive performance in Torino’s 3-0 home win against Sassuolo in the Serie A on Sunday.

Obi scored in the 88th minute to make it 3-0 after Andrea Belotti and Adem Ljajic had scored Torino’s first and second goals respectively.

It was Obi’s first goal of the new season after just two appearances.
