The Nigerian made three appearances in the oldest national football competition in the world and scored three goals from 221 minutes on the pitch..

His impressive performance has earned him a nomination for the best striker award, with votes expected to close on Sunday (today).

Norwich’s Adam Idah and Port Vale’s Tom Pope are third and fourth with 21.6 per cent and 12.6 per cent votes respectively.

The 31-year-old last scored in the FA Cup quarter-final victory over Norwich in June, but is part of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad for the Europa League semi-final against Sevilla today.
