Completesports.com’s ADEBOYE AMOSU x-rays the performance of Flying Eagles players in their 2-1 defeat to Senegal – a Round of 16 match at the 2019 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Poland on Monday, June 3, 2019. ..
OLAWALE OREMADE 6/10
Looked a bit jittery in the game even though he made a couple of good saves.
RABIU MOHAMMED 6/10
Improved like the rest of the team after the break. Defended well but didn’t offer much going forward.
IGHO OGBU 6/10
Gave an improved performance from the previous game against Ukraine, but unfortunately, couldn’t prevent his side from losing the tie.
ALIU SALAWUDEEN 6/10
Looked at home with Igho Ogbu right beside him but the duo couldn’t stop the Senegalese from scoring twice in the game.
IKOUWEN UTIN 5/10
Gave the ball away a couple of times. He never really hit the standard set in the side’s first game against Qatar where he grabbed two assists.
NNAMDI OFOBOR 5/10
Didn’t offer much in the game. He was duly substituted by Tom Dele-Bashiru 20 minutes from time.
KINGSLEY MICHAEL 5/10
A subdued performance from the midfielder who failed to make much impact in the game.
ANIEKEME OKON 7/10
Worked hard as usual and scored Nigeria’s only goal of the game.
MAXWELL EFFIOM 4/10
The Enyimba winger sustained what looked like a bad injury in the first half and was replaced by Collins Sor.
SUCCESS MAKANJUOLA 5/10
Toiled hard to impress in the game with little or nothing to show for his efforts.
TIJANI MUHAMMED 4/10
Difficult to understand why he made the team in the first place. Another subdued performance from the forward.
COLLINS SOR 4/10
Wasted Nigeria’s first real chance of the game. He was anonymous for the better part of the game after replacing the injured Maxwell Effiom in the first half.
PETER ELETU 4/10
Came in for Kingsley Michael two minutes before the hour mark. He didn’t do much to affect the course of the game.
TOM-DELE BASHIRU 5/10
Full of life and energy following his introduction 20 minutes from time.11 BUSINESS NUGGETS FROM SUPER EAGLES BRONZE MEDAL TRIUMPH. The content of this ebook will propel you above your competition. Buy NOW!!!
