Omeruo Impresses Despite Boro Defeat

–Chelsea loanee makes 12 clearances, 4 interceptions

Super Eagles defender, Kenneth Omeruo was in fine despite Middlesbrough’s 1-0 defeat in the English championship by at Leeds.

The Chelsea loanee showed at the World Cup in Brazil he can play at a level above the Championship, but he subsequently decided to switch to Middlesbrough on loan.

The 17-time capped Nigerian international, still only 20, won four aerial duels and made a game-high 12 clearances, along with making four interceptions.

Making three successful tackles, Omeruo touched the ball 11 times more than his defensive partner Daniel Ayala.

Opta powered website whoscored lists Omeruo as Middlesbrough’s best performer on the day, and he certainly impressed watching supporters, who took time to comment via Twitter.
