Gambia captain Omar Colley has been listed in the Goal.com African Team of The Month (TOTM) for March alongside Riyad Mahrez and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
The Gambian stopper enjoyed a fine month for UEFA Europa League surprise package KRC Genk as they advanced to the competition’s quarter-finals.
He scored in the 5-2 away-leg victory over Gent and then delivered an excellent defensive display in the 1-1 draw at home in the reverse fixture before netting in a 4-0 away win at KVC Westerlo in the same month.
His exploits for his team earned him a place in the squad of the month and he will hope his performance in the Europa League play-offs in Belgium will earn him a place in next month’s release.
Other players who made the TOTM are South Africa and Platinum Stars goalkeeper Mbongeni Mzimela, Senegal and Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly, Algeria and Rennes defender Ramy Bensebaini, Ghana and Juventus defender Kwadwo Asamoah, Tanzania and Genk striker Mbwana Ally Samatta, Aalgeria and Leicester City winger, Riyad Mahrez,
Kenya and Ulinzi Stars striker Samuel Onyango,
Nigeria and Portland Timbers striker Fanendo Adi,
Nigeria and Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries FC forward Stephen Odey and Gabon and Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
