Stars Abroad

Nigeria U23 international Emmanuel Dennis has been named in the Team of the Week for the opening round of matches in the Belgian First Division A playoffs.
 
The skilful winger provided two assists as Club Brugge thrashed KAA Gent 3-0 on Sunday (March 30) and it would have been more if Diatta had not been caught offside in the build-up to the fourth goal which was disallowed.
 
 selected Dennis in the right side of midfield in a 3-5-2 formation, the same position he was deployed against Gent.
 
Speaking after the game, Dennis said: ''Trust is important, I get that from the coach too and it was good that I could help my team win.
 
''I wanted three assists, that was equivalent to a 'hat trick'. I really have to work on those assists and play less with my head in the ground.  
 
''I really want to give more assists, my position as a winger demands that too."
 
Dennis's only other assist this season came against Red Bull Salzburg in the Europa League in February.
