Completesports.com’s ADEBOYE AMOSU appraises the performance of Super Eagles players following their 4-4 draw against Sierra Leone in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying fixture at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium, Benin City
MADUKA OKOYE 5/10
Poor performance from the Sparta Rotterdam of Holland goalkeeper. Struggled to control his area and failed to justify his selection ahead of Daniel Akpeyi and Sebastian Osigwe.
KEVIN AKPOGUMA 5/10
Poor home debut for the right-back. Struggled with the pace of the game and was targetted by the Sierra Leoneans.
WILLIAM TROOST-EKONG 5/10
The centre-back was not at his usual best in the game. Caught out of position a number of times and couldn’t prevent his side from conceding four times.
LEON BALOGUN 5/10
Subbed off after the break following an injury. Failed to do much in the game.
ZAIDU SANUSI 5/10
Provided the assist for Victor Osimhen’s second goal but fizzled out afterwards.
OGHENEKARO ETEBO 7/10
He was Nigeria’ s best performer in the game. Controlled the midfield admirably before things turned sour in the second half.
JOE ARIBO 5/10
Failed to impress in his third game against African opposition.
ALEX IWOBI 6/10
Scored two goals and gave the ball away for Sierra Leone’s equalising goal late in the game.
AHMED MUSA 5/10
He was a surprise inclusion in the starting line-up. An average showing from the captain.
SAMUEL CHUKWUEZE 6/10
The pacy winger was on target once and troubled the opposition defence especially in the first half.
VICTOR OSIMHEN 6/10
Sustained a bad injury in the second half. Scored one goal and missed a couple of chances too.
SEMI AJAYI 4/10
Replaced the injured Leon Balogun early in the second half. He couldn’t prevent the Super Eagles from conceding three goals after his introduction.
KELECHI IHEANACHO 4/10
Unlucky not to score a late winner. Surely in contention to start the second leg after Victor Osimhen picked up an injury.
PAUL ONUACHU 4/10
Toiled hard after his introduction in place of Victor Osimhen. Still yet to prove he is ready for international football.
CHIDERA EJUKE 4/10
Replaced Samuel Chukwueze in the closing stages of the game. Not a good outing for the CSKA Moscow winger.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
