Europe: Top Rated African XI this Week

Moving from your comfort zone to succeed or dominate elsewhere is the most difficult thing to accomplish in life and on such accord I hereby intend to enlighten you on African players abroad on obscene research naming the best XI this week in Europe's Top Five Leagues thus Spain, England, Germany, Italy, and France.

Courtesy of sofascore statistics, the best XI includes Edouard Mendy (Chelsea), Kolidou Koulibaly (Napoli), Omar Colley (Sampdoria), Hakimi Achraf (PSG), Hamari Traore (Stade Rennais), Naby Keita (Liverpool), Andre Zambo Anguissa (Napoli), Yves Bissouma (Brighton & Hove Albion), Samuel Chukwueze (Villarreal), Victor Osimhen (Napoli) and Moses Simon (Nantes).

Senegalese Mendy made the goal post although he wasn't protective enough this week but was seen as the best African stopper in Europe. Also, international team Koulibaly and Gambian defender Colley come in the center-back after both ensured victory on the part of their respective clubs. Koulibaly was on the scoresheet and Colley kept a clean sheet. Contributed to PSG draw with Strasbourg in France Ligue 1, Moroccan - Hakimi is deployed in the right-back and Malian Hamari Traore on the left-back.

In the second half of the pitch - Naby Keita, Andre Zambo Anguissa, and Yves Bissouma were recognized as the best trio this week. Done watching teammates score, the Guinean (Keita) grabbed the only goal for Liverpool keeping their pursuit for the League title in play. Bissouma also showed how talented Zambians are in terms of the football spherical got on board in Brighton's vital win. Starred in Napoli's holding role, Cameroonian Anguissa provided support ensuring great stability in check.
