Nigeria’s Calvin Bassey makes Europa League Team of the Season

Rangers defender and Nigeria international Calvin Bassey has been included in the 2021/2022 Europa League team of the season, announced by Uefa.

Bassey is joined by players from his side Rangers, Frankfurt, West Ham and Leipzig.

The 22-year-old Nigerian was instrumental to Rangers run to the final and produced a stellar performance for the Scottish side against Frankfurt in the decider – which they lost 5-4 on penalties after a 1-1 draw.

Also, Frankfurt’s Filip Kostic was named Player of the Season.

‘The 29-year-old was the German side’s creator-in-chief throughout their victorious campaign. His cross for Rafael Borré’s equaliser in the final against Rangers was his sixth of the campaign, two more than any other player in the competition.’

The Serb also scored three times in the competition.

Kostic’s teammate, Ansgar Knauff was honoured as the Europa League Young Player of the Season after lifting the trophy.

‘He played every minute of Frankfurt’s knockout campaign, finding the net against Barcelona and West Ham, and also laying on a crucial assist in the semi-final second leg against the English side.’
