    Tyrrone Ebuehi came close to being Man-of-the-match

    My overall ratings

    Uzoho 6.0

    Not really troubled, diluted a good catch with a bad parry that resulted into a goal, fortunately was offside (to be frank I didn’t see the offside), commanded his box well with a corner.. NOT really troubled

    Ebuehi 7.0

    Good foward link up play on the right side of the pitch with Etebo, Iheanacho, Ndidi and Chukwueze..had a shot on target after selling his marker causing the commentator to say “Thanks for coming” to the marker.. + good defensive plays..

    Troost-Ekong 6.5

    Didn’t really understand his yellow card but nonetheless solid., quiet 2nd half but didn’t lose his defensive concentration by body checking a Lesotho player to earn a throw in when it seemed the Lesotho player had it all…

    Balogun 6.0

    Bad pass and dispossed near his box 18 non chalantly, a shot on target via a corner and a positive run into the Lesotho box 18..Solid

    Sanusi 5.5

    Not enough offensive input compared to Ebuehi, tho’ his defense is solid..continued his somewhat lukewarm approach to the game by losing concentration on his first moment on the ball in the 2nd half.. And then followed it up with a bad pass.. Immediately subbed off

    Ndidi 8.5 MOTM

    The recently named 13th best player in the 1st quarter of 2021, was a defensive magnet, won at least 5 balls with either tackles or interceptions in the 1st half and followed that with winning 5 balls either through tackles, interceptions and aerial duels.. Lost concentration however in the space of 2 mins with 2 lose balls with bad controls… Still a BEAST!!!

    Etebo 7.5

    A rasping shot off target, + some powerful forward runs from the midfield. scored a goal with a somewhat weak controlled shot, held the ball in tight spaces tremendously well + another shot off target

    Iwobi 6.0

    Too many unsuccessful passes.. His trying to force the issue is good but needs more precision. A shot on target but it lacked power.. Just an average day, subbed off early..

    Chukwueze 6.0

    A successful dribble and 1 key pass in the 1st half. More impact in the 2nd half, with his play contributing to the 2nd goal..Lukewarm

    Iheanacho 7.0

    Great Assist! A tame shot on target, contributed in the link to the 2nd goal, had a tight good pass on the break, a dribble followed with a shot off target.. Good game overall..

    Osimhen 7.5

    Scored the goal, had a shot off target, and forced a goal kick with good defensive pressure at the near post during a corner, then turned up 2nd half with an assist, good hustle play to win a corner, shot off target..

    ……

    Subs

    Onuachu 7.0

    Goal with a side foot shot off Onyekuru assist.. Positive mentality..

    Onyekuru 6.5

    Assisted Onuachu minus some bad passes in the final third of the opponents field..

    Musa 6.0

    Impact not much..

    Iwuala 6.0

    Some unnecessary showboating, not enough time to make an impact…

    Collins 6.0

    More offensive minded than Sanusi.. Put in some crosses but were mostly unsuccessful.. Tidy..

    Great performance!you do always play your heart out for Nigeria since your youth days.Your all action style puts a lot of pressure on opposition defence.
    Osimhen is still very young and has a lot to learn and Nigeria is the winner because his services will last for many more years for his country.

     
  • Rohr’s apprentice keep it up….

    Follow in the foot step of your senior bros @IGHALO….
    We need that golden boot at afcon again…

    Atleast your oga (MECHANIC) is doing a great job which only those with eyes and clear conscience can see.

  • WELL DONE SUPER EAGLES, WELL PLAYED.
    CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL THE PLAYERS AND THOSE WHO SCORED TODAY. BUT AS MUCH AS I APPRECIATE ALL THE GOAL SCORERS TODAY, I JUST WANT TO ADD THAT SADIQ UMAR WILL ALWAYS BE AN OPTION IN THE SUPER EAGLES EVEN THOUGH HE DIDN’T GET HIS CHANCE TO PLAY IN THIS TWO GAMES, HE IS STILL A QUALITY PLAYER. WHILE OSIMHEN AND ONUACHU WERE BUSY SCORING FOR THE SUPER EAGLES, HE WAS BUSY SCORING FOR HIS CLUB, ALMERIA ABOUT THE SAME TIME NIGERIA WAS PLAYING LESOTHO, ALMERIA WERE ALSO PLAYING AND BIG NUMBER 9 SCORED AS WELL. IM HAPPY THAT THE PRESSURE AND CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM PAUL HAS FACED HAS ENERGIZED HIM TO START SCORING GOALS FOR THE NATIONAL TEAM, BUT I ADVISE HIM TO MAINTAIN THIS RUN OF FORM BECAUSE NEXT TIME AROUND HE WILL HAVE NOT ONLY OSIMHEN AND IHEANACHO TO CONTEND WITH BUT SADIQ UMAR AS WELL.

    I wish to join my good friend, Omo9ja to congratulate our lanky Osimhen for winning the best player of the tournament with five Goals. I am sure our Ighalo will be happy with ‘Osi-goal’ for this achievement. One thing l noticed with Omo9ja, he never uses abusive words no matter what they say about him. people should refrain from using abusive language in a public forum like this. Nigerians in all parts of this Planet reads and plays over here. Fans can disagree, foal or abusive wards should be avoided. Lets go, the World-cup qualifiers is around the corner.
