Complesports.com’s ADEBOYE AMOSU rates the performance of Flying Eagles players in their 2-0 defeat to Brazil in La Plata on Saturday night

CHIJIOKE ANIAGBOSO 6/10
The goalkeeper looked a bit shaky in the game. Conceded twice after he was exposed by his defence.

AUGUSTINE NJOKU 5/10
His defending was not up to scratch in the game. The right-back couldn’t cope with the tricky Brazilian forwards.

DANIEL BAMEYI 5/10
A below-par showing from the captain. He was not at his best in the game.

ABEL OGWUCHE 6/10
Made a number vital blocks to make the scoreline more respectable. The centre-back was booked in the second half.

SOLOMON AGBALAKA 5/10
Another poor performance from the left-back who has struggled so far in the competition.

DANIEL DAGA 6/10
An above average showing from the talented midfielder. Daga was replaced in the second half by John Joshua.

VICTOR ELETU 5/10
The AC Milan youngster was largely anonymous in the game. He didn’t influence the game much.

SAMSON LAWAL 5/10
Started the game well but fizzled out afterwards. Did better than previous game.

He was close to scoring the opener on eight minutes but was tamed by the Brazilians afterwards.

UMEH EMMANUEL 6/10
One of the better performers on the night for the Flying Eagles.

SALIM FAGO 4/10
The forward was easily tamed by the Brazilian defence. He was replaced by Haliru Sarki in the second half.

    Complete Sports analysis did a poor job by giving Nnadi a rating of 4. Nnadi, who came in and opened up space for the flying eagle, outperformed Samson Tijanni and Eletu. You should have recognized his superior performance. Complete Sports, you can definitely do better.

      His passes are always heavy. He really needs to work on that

      Nnadi game have been poor through out this tournament, he doesn’t have football sense!

  • Immediately I saw our formation I knew that Nigeria would lost the match.

    Also, the ability to read the game as it progress and know what to do. The Brazilian coach saw the way our boys started the match and quickly develop strategy with the same boys on the field to tame and check the ranging Nigeria boys within twenty minutes of kickoff.

    The moment the Brazilian started getting behind our defenders which lead to Daga first yellow card all in his effort to safe Nigeria defense I knew that the goal would come.

    I suggest we continue with the same formula we used for Italy 4:2:3:1

    Absence of Fredrick aslo affect the defense.

    God bless Nigeria.

    I hope we lean from this match. No error going forward.

  • Coaching problem again. I have little hopes they can go beyond Argentina or USA. How I wished we have good coaches in this country

    The coach can’t read the game ?..Why pressurizing the Brazilians when you know they needed to win the match more than us , thereby exposing our defense?..4:2:3:1 formation we used against Italy could have been the best for this game , allowing the Brazilians to wear themselves out and then counter attack!!..The coach really messed up , I don’t know if we have match readers in the coaching crew , otherwise we are a bunch of no goal getters !!

    I watched the match from start to finish. The brazilians could run more than our boys.

  • Nigeria performed admirably, but Brazil still needed the victory. greater than us.Imagine the two shots that hit the crossbar when they were fired.If it had been 2 2

  • Despite Nigeria’s admirable performance, Brazil still needed to secure the victory, proving their superiority over us. We can only imagine the outcome if the two shots that hit the crossbar had found the back of the net, resulting in a 2-2 draw.
