AVERAGE SHOWING: Flying Eagles’ Rating Vs South Africa


Completesports.com’s ADEBOYE AMOSU rates the performance of Flying Eagles players in Tuesday’s 0-0 draw with the Amajita of South Africa in their second Group A clash of the U-20 Africa Cup of Nations at the Stade General S. K., Niamey.

OLAWALE OREMADE 6/10
The lanky goalkeeper had little or nothing to do for the entire duration of the game as the South Africans rarely made forays at the Flying Eagles’ goall.

MIKE ZARUMA 5/10
Got himself in good positions a couple of times but unfortunately failed to deliver good crosses into the box.

JAMES OZORNWAFOR 6/10
The towering centre-back impressed at the heart of the defence as he kept the South African forwards at bay all through.

IGOR OGBU 6/10
Combined effectively with James Ozornwafor to make the Flying Eagles’ defence impregnable for the South Africans.

IKOUEWEN UDOH 6/10
Defended well but looked a bit suspect while going forward. Failed to hit the standard expected of him in the game.

IBRAHIM ABUBAKAR 5/10
Failed to impose himself on the game with a couple of wayward passes.

AFEEZ AREMU 5/10
Started the game brightly but fizzled out later. He was substituted early in the second-half with Pascal Durugbor taking his place.

MUHAMMAD JAMIL 5/10
Had a quiet afternoon but was surprisingly left on the pitch for the entire duration of the game.

MAXWELL EFFIOM 5/10
Got the nod to start the game after impressing as a substitute in the first outing against Burundi where he bagged the Flying Eagles’ second goal, but failed to justify his selection with an average showing against the South Africans

ADAMU ALHASSAN 5/10
He was marked out of the game by the South Africans. Alhassan had a rather quiet game and it was a surprise he was left on the pitch all through.

NAZIFI YAHAYA 5/10
Started well, but was later out-muscled by the Amajita defence who didn’t give him breathing space in the game.

SUBSTITUTES
PASCAL DURUGBOR 4/10
Came in for Afeez Aremu in the second half but failed to make significant impact in the game.

ANIEKEME OKON 3/10
Didn’t make any meaningful impact in the Flying Eagles’ team performance following his introduction for Ibrahim Abubakar.

    This is the first time CS will rate accordingly as per true reflection of the players performance. I hope they get better against the physical Niger

    So, these are under 20s?

     
    • I wonder. Age cheating. You don’t need MRI to detect that these men are approaching 30! What a shame. Does NFF employ a doctor?

        I wonder, some of them have ball head splashing to the camera.

          You can never know ones true age by his looks, I once took a sixteen years old student to an athletics meet and people were saying he is too old! So stop spoiling the moment

  • the truth is CSN dont know how to rate. i didn’t watch de match, bt accordin to ratin de boys tried. even csn stated de rsv rarely trouble our keeper dat shows we really play them. wen ever nigeria draw with an opponent team CSN always scold de players not regardin the opponent side as also a champion. truth is south african know how to play nigeria and ready to play extraodinary wen ever they meet at senior,junior,women level. they re ready for nigeria even in a dream. . qp

     
    • My brother, I watched the match live,the boys tried a whole lot, they dominated most of the match, the pitch was not good enough though, it was bumpy and not quite suitable for possession football the type Nigeria was trying to play but they still had about 70% of the possession, however they still need to watch on decision making in the final third of matches. But I am always happy when I see the central pair of the defence and the goal keeper. It was a one way trafic

       
  • So This lazy men are just out there for fashon parade.
