Completesportsnigeria.com’s ADEBOYE AMOSU rates the performance of Super Eagles players in the friendly against Atletico Madrid at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, Uyo on Tuesday…
FEMI THOMAS 6/10
Conceded three goals but made a number of key saves in the game. He was not at fault for either of the goals.
MUSA MOHAMMED 6/10
The right-back put in a fine performance in the game. Made overlapping runs up front and performed his defensive task dutifully.
OLAMILEKAN ADELEYE 5/10
The FC IfeanyiUbah defender was caught out of position a couple of times and was badly positioned for Atletico Madrid’s third goal. He put in an average showing in the game.
CHINEDU AJANAH 6/10
Misses a glorious chance to put the Eagles ahead in the first half after directing his header from a good position off target. Did not do badly in what was his maiden appearance for the Super Eagles.
EBUBE DURU 5/10
Made a couple of interceptions but did not support the attack much. He was replaced by Ikouwen Udoh after sustaining an injury in the second half.
IBRAHIM ALHASSAN 4/10
The former Akwa United player was not in his best elements in the game. Struggled to impress and was hauled off before the break.
KELECHI NWAKALI 8/10
Scored Nigeria’s first goal of the game, a stunning strike from the outside the box. The young midfielder was a handful for the opponents.
CHIDIEBERE NWAKALI 7/10
Took time to settle into the game and improved with the introduction of Usman Mohammed after the break. Showed he can play a role in the main Eagles in future.
EMEM EDUOK. 5/10
Played to the gallery at times even though he showed some promise. He was at fault for the first goal scored by Atletico Madrid as he lost the ball rather cheaply in midfield.
DAYO OJO 5/10
Struggled in an unfamiliar left-wing role and was duly substituted early in the second half.
SAMAD KADIRI 5/10
Found the going too tough on his international debut. The Sunshine Stars forward did not really impress in the game.
DESTINY ASHADI 5/10
Came in for the ineffective Ibrahim Alhassan and added more steel to the midfield
USMAN MOHAMMED 7/10
A fine performance from the Norway based midfielder who scored a beauty of a goal following his introduction after the break.
TOSIN OMOYELE 5/10
The Plateau United forward added bite to the team’s attack following his introduction. Provided the assist for Usman Mohammed’s second goal.
IKOUWEN UDOH 5/10
Proved his class after coming in for the injured Ebube Duru. Defended well and supported the attack at will.
ALHASSAN IBRAHIM 3/10
Didn’t make much impact following his introduction.
