John Mikel Obi and Victor Moses have been name Sports Man of the Year and Nigerian Footballer of the Year awards respectively at the Nigerian Sports Awards.

Mikel, as one of the senior players in a young Nigeria side, was ever-present in the Cup of Nations and Confederations Cup campaigns, and was one of the three nominees for the Nigerian Footballer of the Year. While, Moses, currently on loan at Liverpool, scored two vital goals in the group stage at the Africa Cup of Nations and netted earlier this month as Nigeria booked their place in Brazil.

However, both Mikel and Moses were part of the team that won the Africa Cup of Nations for their country for the first time since 1994 back in February, and have since been part of a successful qualification campaign for the World Cup.
