While No Nigeria player made the starting XI of the CHAN 2016 Tournament picked by the Confederation of African Football (CAF), Chisom Chikatara was able to make the subs bench.
The Abia Warriors goal poacher who is believed to be close to a switch to Morocco where he will be joining Wydad Casablanca scored four goals for the Super Eagles in Rwanda.
Chikatara’s most remarkable display will be his hat trick inside 25 minutes during the group opener against Niger.
Top scorer and MVP was DR Congo’s Mechack Elia, who scored four goals and provided two assists as his country won the competition for the second time.
He was one of four DRC players on the tournament XI.
