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.
