James Obiorah
Club:Lokomtiv Moscow
Position:Midfielder

Obiorah is among the growing African contingent playing in Russian domestic football.

At home he failed to make the same mark as he has at Grasshoppers, Anderlecht and now Lokomotiv Moscow.

Although a midfielder for Nigeria, is regularly used as one of Lokomtiv's two strikers.

Has an encouraging strike rate although can leave holes in his side's midfield due to his continually attacking strategy.
