EFT Player of the month for August: Nwankwo Kanu!
Andy Johnson, Ryan Giggs and Louis Saha all featured in the race for our player of the month award but with three first choice votes and one second choice vote from the regular five-man EFT panel we can announce that Portsmouth's Nwankwo Kanu is the winner of our Player of the month award for August (and on behalf of the EFT team I admit we are late in announcing this award... there were communication problems that can be blamed on early season rustiness!).
Not only was Kanu sensational in scoring 4 goals to help propel Pompey to an excellent start in the Premiership, but even more sensationally this comes after spending the majority of the summer as a free agent struggling to find a club to play to play for.
Check out Kanu at his best when scoring the fourth of his four goals last month away at Middlesbrough.
The chipped finish was superb!
