Completesportsnigeria.com’s ADEBOYE AMOSU rates the Super Eagles players following their 1-1 draw in a friendly game against Democratic Republic of Congo at the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium, Port Harcourt on Monday…
FRANCIS UZOHO 7/10
The young goalkeeper looked solid in goal and made three brilliant saves in the game.
TYRONNE EBUEHI 6/10
Was lively early in the game but fizzled out later. He did enough to prove he can give regular right-back Shehu Abdullahi proper competition.
WILLIAM TROOST-EKONG 7/10
Scored his side’s first goal of the game. The Bursaspor of Turkey centre-back was impressive and coped well with the Congolese forwards.
LEON BALOGUN 6/10
Missed a good chance of registering a goal from a corner kick in the second half. Had a difficult time stopping the dangerous Benik Afobe.
ELDERSON ECHIEJILE 5/10
Average performance from the left-back who was duly hauled off after the break.
JOEL OBI 5/10
The Torino midfielder didn’t make much impact in the game, but showed flashes of brilliance. His chances of a berth in final squad have not been enhanced.
OGENYI ONAZI 5/10
An average performance from the stand-in captain who failed to replicate his impressive past showings for the Super Eagles.
KELECHI IHEANACHO 6/10
Started the game brightly but somehow struggled afterwards. He set up his side’s only goal. He was substituted after the break.
OGHENEKARO ETEBO 6/10
Full of running in the middle of the park and showed his versatility by playing on the left side of the attack later in the game.
JUNIOR LOKOSA 7/10
Played in an unfamiliar right-wing position and showed some promise. He did his chances no harm.
SIMEON NWANKWO 8/10
The Crotone of Italy forward came close to scoring twice in the game and showed good skills on the ball. He lacked good service but imposed himself on the game.
MIKEL AGU 5/10
Came in for Joel Obi after the break and didn’t make much impact following his introduction.
OLA AINA 5/10
The half time substitute made forays upfront unlike the man he replaced, Elderson Echiejile but was unlucky to concede the penalty that led to the Congolese equalising goal.
KENETH OMERUO 5/10
Came in Leon Balogun did his best to help stabilize the defence which looked shaky for majority of the game.
AHMED MUSA 5/10
Looked lively after coming in for Junior Lokosa 20 minutes from the end.
SHEHU ABDULLAHI 5/10
Didn’t spend enough time on the pitch to affect the game positively.
