  • Nigeria still lacks quality goalkeepers and defensive midfielders. A better goalkeeper could have prevented the second Algerian goal. I think Alhassan and Onyedika should be introduced in future matches as midfielders. Frank Onyeka still needs to improve his game. The officiating was also a bit suspect. Overall, there is a lot of room for improvement.
