    Forster and Ambrose in UEFA's Team of the Week

    By: Newsroom Staff on 26 Oct, 2012 11:14

  • THE impressive performances of Fraser Forster and Efe Ambrose agaisnt Barcelona in the Camp Nou on Tuesday night have been recognised by UEFA, as both players have been included in their UEFA Champions League Team of the Week.
     
    It was an heroic performance by Neil Lennon´s side against a team regarded as the best club side in the world, and it took a goal in the fourth minute of added time to give the Catalan giants a 2-1 win.
     
    Fraser Forster produced a brilliant display of goalkeeping, denying Barcelona´s world-class players on a number of occasions with a string of great saves. And his performance reiterated his quality, which has seen him rewarded with a call-up to the England national squad earlier this month.
     
    And Efe Ambrose was part of a tremendous defensive display by Celtic, with every player in a green and white jersey working tirelessly throughout the match.
     
    The Nigerian internationalist, who scored his first goal for Celtic last weekend against St Mirren - and then produced a stunning acrobatic celebration - has already become a fans´ favourite, and his display in the Nou Camp was another indication that Celtic have signed another top-quality player.
     
    The UEFA team of the week is:
    Fraser Forster (Celtic)
    Eliseu (Malaga)
    Michael Parkhurst (FC Nordsjaelland)
    Felice Piccalo (Cluj)
    Efe Ambrose (Celtic)
    Joaquin (Malaga)
    Sebastian Kehl (Borussia Dortmund)
    Christian Eriksen (Ajax)
    Willian (Shakhtar Donetsk)
    Roberto Soldado (Valencia)
    Alan (Braga)
