We made a plea for readers to vote and support our very own to win a twitter poll earlier this week.

It came in the 30th minute of the matchday 10 fixture of the NPFL played at the Agege Township Stadium.
After collecting a pass, Olatunbosun looped the ball over Rangers captain and right-back Matthew Etim before firing off a fierce shot with his left foot into the top corner.
The clip of the goal has become an internet sensation and was included in the CNN’s Goal of the Week.
82% of the vote went to the MFM FC player beating competition from Radja Nainggolan of Roma, Youri Tielemans of Anderlecht and Joey Jones of Woking FC.
