WILLIAM TROOST-EKONG 7/10
Had a tough time curtailing the Brazilians after the break but stood up well to the challenge.
JAMILU COLLINS 6/10
Exposed a number of times by Gabriel Jesus and Dani Alves. The SC Paderborn left-back will need to working on his marking ability.
WILFRED NDIDI 6/10
Failed to shield the defence well and looked tired after the break.

Cool, calm and collected. Aribo scored Nigeria’s only goal, his second in as many games. His energy and industry will be vital for the team in future.
