TEHRAN (Tasnim) - Godwin Mensha has been named the Toyota Player of the Week after the striker netted a brace in Persepolis’ 2-2 draw with Al Hilal in the AFC Champions League semi-final second leg on Tuesday.

Unfortunately for the 28-year-old Nigerian and his side, the 4-0 deficit from the first meeting in Abu Dhabi proved too big an obstacle to overcome despite the best efforts of Mensha who twice put Persepolis ahead on the night in Muscat, the-afc wrote.

The man from Lagos, who gained a rating of 9.2, had 56 touches, made 32 successful passes and scored his brace from just five shots on goal, three of which were on target.
