Completesportsnigeria.com’s ADEBOYE AMOSU rates Super Eagles players following their 2-0 defeat against Serbia in a friendly match on Tuesday…
FRANCIS UZOHO 6/10
Conceded twice in his third outing for Nigeria. The young goalkeeper looked more confident in goal on occasion and make a couple of important saves. But he should have done better with the ball that crossed the line that the referee did not count. Still appeared nervous at times.
TYRONNE EBUEHI 4/10
The right-back didn’t live up to his rating in the game. Ebuehi’s defending was below average and he also offered little going forward.
WILLIAM TROOST-EKONG 4/10
Didn’t quite hit the usual standard in the absence of his regular partner Leon Balogun who missed the game through illness. He was caught out in possession a number of times, did not deal decisively with balls into the box and was not at his best in the game.
CHIDOZIE AWAZIEM 5/10
The Nantes centre-back did npt do badly in what was his second start for the Super Eagles. He made a couple of important blocks and proved he could be a good replacement for Balogun, but he also contributed to the poor defending of balls into the box.
BRYAN IDOWU 4/10
Did not Improve much on his performance from the previous game against Poland and still did not do enough to prove he is right man for the position.
OGENYI ONAZI 4/10
An error-strewn performance from the stand-in captain who failed to lead by example and was duly hauled off in the second half.
JOEL OBI 4/10
The Torino of Italy midfielder gave a below-par showing in the encounter and didn’t do his chances of picking a regular berth in the team any good.
WILFRED NDIDI 5/10
Toiled hard to co-ordinate things in the middle of the park with little or no success. Although he showed flashes of brilliance on two or three occasions, the Leicester City midfielder won’t be happy with his performance either.
ALEX IWOBI 6/10
The Arsenal man was the team’s most lively player after dropping into a midfield role in the second half. He may be the right man to direct things in the middle in the absence of captain Mikel Obi in future.
VICTOR MOSES 4/10
A disappointing showing from the winger who only played for 45 minutes.
AHMED MUSA 4/10
Preferred in the No.9 role ahead of Odion Ighalo but lacked service upfront and hardly touched the ball.
ODION IGHALO 5/10
Looked lively following his introduction for Victor Moses after the break and was unlucky not to get a goal in the game.
MOSES SIMON 4/10
Did npt do anything to affect the game positively following his introduction.
JOHN OGU 4/10
Picked up a stupid yellow card for elbowing an opponent few minutes after his introduction.
