Eric Ejiofor
Club:Maccabi Haifa
Position:Defender

Eric Ejiofor was part of the Nigerian team that beat closest rivals Liberia 2-0 and virtually assured his country's place in the World Cup.

Whether he manages to keep his place in the Nigerian XI remains to be seen.

His youthful exuberance, usually an asset to the team, sometimes boils over into recklessness and he has left his team-mates in precarious positions in the past.

Now based in the Israeli league, Ejiofor had looked set to join Portsmouth before being refused a work permit.

Strong performances at centre-half for Nigeria in the summer could see a fresh move to England, and the Premiership.
