Here, Completesports.com rates the performance of each Super Eagles players that featured against the 2021 AFCON hosts.
Maduka Okoye (6)
Just like in the first game he didn’t really had much to do except on two occasions in the second half when he had to come to his team’s rescue with timely intervention.
Shehu Abdullahi (5)
Went close to helping the Eagles open scoring as he ran on to a through ball on the right only to see his cutback cross cleared away. Aside that didn’t really do much helping the attack.
Chidozie Awaziem (7)
In the absence of the regular centre-backs did well enough to marshall the backline by denying the Cameroonians clear-cut opportunities.
Valentine Ozornwafor (6)
Made his first Super Eagles start following the absence of the regular central defenders and impressed. Came to the Eagles’ rescue with a timely block to halt a counter by the Cameroonians.
Jamilu Collins (5)
Like his opposite full-back Shehu Abdullahi, Jamilu Collins did not offer much in the attacking third. He was later replaced by Abraham Marcus.
Moses Simon (5)
Tried to make something happen from the left wing but struggled to make much impact.
Wilfred Ndidi (6)
Did well enough to make sure the Eagles did not lose control of the midfield.
Alex Iwobi (7)
Saved the Eagles’ blushes by clearing a goal bound effort off the line. Threaded a ball through for Paul Onuachu but the Genk forward failed to direct his shot on target. Set up Iheanacho late in the game but the Leicester man’s strike was parried away by the Cameroonian keeper for a corner.
Ahmed Musa (4)
Didn’t do anything of note and was replaced by Anayo Iwuala.
Kelechi Iheanacho (6)
Had the Eagles’ best chance of the game 13 minutes from time and a fine through pass from Iwobi but his effort was stopped.
Paul Onuachu (5)
He only really came close to scoring when he was played through by Iwobi only to shoot off target. Aside that didn’t offer much and wss replaced by Terem Moffi before the start of the second half.
Abraham Marcus (5)
Guilty of many misplaced passes despite getting into good positions.
Terem Moffi (5)
Moffi wasted a very good chance to put Nigeria ahead in the 50th minute shooting horribly wide from inside the box. From then on was anonymous.
Anayo Iwuala (5)
Was brought on for the ineffective Musa but did not have much impact.Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
