Super Eagles goalkeeper Maduka Okoye has been included in the Eredivisie Team of the season.
The Nigerian first choice goalie was included for his fine displays between the sticks for Sparta Rotterdam.
Okoye moved to Sparta Rotterdam from Fortuna Dusseldorf at the start of the season.
Since his arrival, the 21year-old has conceded 35 goals in 28 games, kept 10 clean sheets and saved 33% of the penalties he faced.
“With competitors such as Remko Pasveer from Vitesse and Sergio Padt from FC Groningen, the choice was not easy but Okoye had a wonderful season at Sparta,” voetbalzone said on their website.
The German born has also seen his transfer value rise by five times and is reported to be attracting interest from other clubs including Dutch Champions Ajax.
