Okay, so I know this isn't football related but it's a big deal that Aruna Quadri got awarded the prestigious Player of The Year award by the International Table Tennis Federation for the year 2014. A first by a Nigerian and an African.

The ceremony was held in Dubai at the Armani Hotel.

Big cingrats to him for a wonderful 2014 where he repped Nigeria's colors to high praise.

Currently ranked 30th in the world, Qyadri defeated the world number 1 Xu Xin of China and other top stars this year.
