GREAT! Golden Eaglets Rating In U-17 AFCON Group A Draw Vs Uganda

Completesports.com’s ADEBOYE AMOSU rates the performance of Golden Eaglets, players-by-player, in their 1-1 draw against Uganda – matchday-3 Group A clash at the 2019 U-17 Africa Cup of Nations in Tanzania. Nigeria won the group on seven points to advance to the semi-finals and also secured qualification for the 2019 FIFA U-17 World Cup in Brazil.

SUNDAY STEPHEN 7/10

He was largely untested in the game as he was well protected by his defence. Stephen was not at fault for Uganda’s goal scored by substitute Alou John.

SHEDRACK TANKO 7/10

Put up a good display in the game. Performed his defensive task dutifully and supported the attack well too.

OGAGA ODUKO 7/10

A solid performance from the centre-back. He coped well with the threat of the Ugandans and barely put a foot wrong in the game.

CLEMENT IKENNA 7/10

Continued his partnership with Ogaga Oduko in the heart of Nigeria’s defence. Did his job well alongside Oduko.

DAVID ISHAYA 6/10

His mistimed clearance led to Uganda’s goal scored by substitute Alou John, otherwise it was an above average showing from the defender.

SAMSON TIJANI 7/10

Cool, calm and collected. Tijani led by example and put another fine performance in the middle of the pack.

MAYOWA ABAYOMI 6/10

Not in his true element in the game. Picked up an early yellow card and was substituted by Fawaz Abdullahi at the stroke of half-time.

OLATOMI OLANIYAN 7/10

Lively all through the game. He has been a top performer for the Golden Eaglets in the competition.

IBRAHEEM JABAAR 7/10

Scored the equalising goal in what was a fine display for the Golden Eaglets.

AKINWUNMI AMOO 6/10

The man of the match in Nigeria’s opening game win against Tanzania was wasteful in the match missing a number of good chances.

WISDOM UBANI 7/10

Unlucky not to get on the score sheet with the Uganda goalkeeper proving his achilles heel.

SUBSTITUTES

FAWAZ ABDULLAHI 5/10

Never got into the grip of the game following his introduction for Mayowa Abayomi.

OLAKUNLE OLUSEGUN 5/10

Contributed positively in the game after taking the place of Akinwunmi Amoo.
