Bamai Bukar is the captain of newly promoted El-Kanemi Warriors FC, based in Maiduguri, north-eastern Nigeria. Bukar is a versatile midfielder, comfortable in an attacking role due to his creativity, but mostly used in a defensive role due to his strenght and power. At the time of writing, Bukar has scored three goals during the GLO Premier League 2013,

At the time of writing, powerful striker Ifeanyi Ede has scored four goals during the Nigerian GLO Premier League 2013. Ede’s goalscoring record has never been eye-catching but most followers of Nigerian football will easily rate the strongman as one of the top strikers in the domestic league, primarily because of his aerial strenght, his healthy work-rate and his physical presence. Further, Ede has a lot of experience from the Nigerian league, from the CAF Champions League and from the various Nigerian national football teams. From my point of view, Ede is ready for an European adventure.
