Completesports.com‘s ADEBOYE AMOSU rates the performances of Super Eagles players in their 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier against the Blue Sharks of Cape Verde at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos on Tuesday night…
MADUKA OKOYE 6/10
The goalleeper had little or nothing to do in the game. Okoye conceded for the third time in the qualifiers.
MOSES SIMON 6/10
Played the corner-kick that was converted by Victor Osimhen for Nigeria’s only goal of the game. Not a bad performance from the Nantes of France man.
JAMILU COLLINS 6/10
Excelled in the wing-back position once again. He seems determined not to relinquish his starting role in the team.
CHIDOZIE AWAZIEM 6/10
Posted an above average performance in the game. He has now started Nigeria’s last three games.
WILLIAM TROOST- EKONG 6/10
The Watford defender misplaced a pass in the first half. He would do well to improve on his concentration level.
LEON BALOGUN 6/10
Got booked for a rash challenge late on. Did well to keep the opposing strikers at bay.
WILFRED NDIDI 7/10
Dictate the pace for the Super Eagles especially in the first half. One of Nigeria’s best performers on the night.
JOE ARIBO 6/10
Had a well struck shot saved by the Cape Verde goalkeeper in the first half. Tired out and was replaced by Frank Onyeka in the 77th minute.
ALEX IWOBI 7/10
A lively display from the Everton man. Iwobi was everywhere on the pitch.
ODION IGHALO 5/10
The striker struggled to make much impact on his return to the Super Eagles. Fluffed two good scoring opportunities in the first half.
VICTOR OSIMHEN 8/10
Scored Nigeria’s only goal of the game and was a threat to the opposition defence all through.
SHEHU ABDULLAHI 4/10
Helped kept things tight at the back after replacing the injured Moses Simon in the second half.
FRANK ONYEKA 4/10
Took the place of Joe Aribo13 minutes from time.
KELECHI IHEANACHO 4/10
Dropped to the bench for Odion Ighalo. He didn’t do much after replacing the latter.
