Super Eagles’ Rating Player-By-Player In Defeat To Central African Republic

Super Eagles’ Rating Player-By-Player In Defeat To Central African Republic

Following the Super Eagles 1-0 loss to the Wild Beasts of Central African Republic in Thursday’s 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying encounter , Completesports.com’s ADEBOYE AMOSU appraises the performance of the players…

He produced a fine save to deny the Wild Beasts in the 66th minute, but couldn’t prevent the visitors from scoring the winning goal late on.


Solid defensively and did a good job supporting the attack. He was one of the top performers for the Super Eagles on the night.

Had a good game but was at fault for the only conceded by the Super Eagles.

Zenith Ziva

Did well despite his team conceding a late goal in the game.

Not one of his best performance for the Super Eagles. The left-back didn’t make much impact in the game.

Failed to fill in well for the injured Wilfred Ndidi. The Brentford man didn’t do much to justify his selection.

The midfielder produced a below par showing in the game. He was duly replaced by Ahmed Musa 12 minutes from time.

He was forced off with an injury after the break. Perhaps he could have made the difference if he had stayed on the pitch longer than that.

A lively performance from the Nantes of France winger. He was replaced by Samuel Kalu in the 71st minute.

The winger was behind most of the team’s positive moves upfront. He will surely keep his place in the next game.

Wasted three good opportunities to put his side in front . The Napoli forward had a poor game.


Made a positive impact after replacing Kelechi Iheanacho in the second half but fizzled out afterwards.

The winger didn’t do much after his introduction for Moses Simon in the second half.

Not Rated.

    Osimhen playing trash on a regular this days at the super eagles

    Moses 7/10? Hmmmmm

  • Footballfanatic 2 weeks ago

    Completesports you guys are lunatics….. lol I reserve my reasons.

  • Michel 2 weeks ago

    Poor analysis as usual,the players were too slow and it’s time rohr should start playing awaziem,we strong defenders,this oyibo wall thing is no longer working,as for the coach,I won’t say anything for now

  • Onyeka did not do well is a lie. He did very well if truly you watch the match. As for Ejuke nice game. Surprised at people saying the attacker was not feed wuthe ball, Oshimen waisted like 3 chances so also Awoniyi should have bury that chances immediately he came up though their defender were blocking every ball there. Though not in my habit to blame certain players but I can say our attacker didn’t play well today but in all kudos to d boys better luck in next match

    • @ Tayo sometimes absent minded mothers feed babies through their nose. Food always going the wrong way. All the baby is asking is for food to come through the mouth and not the nose. Lets be honest brotherly, some players have been giving well enough time to impress but they have been, simply put, PRETENDERS. These are the players that are going to mess Rohr’s good job up if he is not careful. We were sadly crawling like snail in the first half; can you imagine? Just shows how much the players have suddenly become sooooo complacent and over-confident. That was our hoodoo in todays game. Zaidu’s quickness cutting in from the wing into the middle when he is closed down from the wide is business like and was really missing today. Iwobi link up play, quick forward passing and bringing other players into play, was missing, Ndidi quick feet off the ground to track back, covering up for the center backs was missing. Its sad but its football. So we look away from this and look forward with strong determination to redeem our image. I mentioned in an earlier post, that we must take this match as a final because I kinda had this strange feeling, something bad was going to happen going by how fans were already counting their chicks before they were harshed. FROM WHAT I HAVE COME TO KNOW ABOUT NIGERIA FOOTBALL, JUST START TO FAST AND PRAY EVERYTIME FOOTBALL FANS AND PLAYERS STARTS TO BOAST OF WHITEWASHING A TEAM. IT 90% ALWAYS LEAVE BEHIND SOME RUDE SHOCK.

    What a disgrace. A country of more than 200m losing against some set of Farmers from CAR lol. They played like Buhari

  • Osimhen is just a shoot-striker. He doesn’t dribble or try to beat his marker, he shoots whatever ball that comes to him. There were chances that came to him and I expected him to beat his marker before shooting but he shot right away even when he knew it will be very difficult to score from that angle. That is why Rohr keep talking about recalling Ighalo, because Ighalo knows how to outwit or beat his markers before shooting

    • Good analysis you have eagle eyes

    • MAJOR HILLS 2 weeks ago

      And you know the painful thing oui? Baba has the ability to easily beat his marker, i don’t just understand, guy, stop waiting your God given gift and play football God has made easy for you, at charleroi and lille, he wasn’t like this, though am loving the improvement in his general gameplay, but the scoring side of it seems to be depreciating

    For the past 5 to 6 years, Balogun and Ekong have formed a formidable partnership in central defense, which has contributed towards many fine performances and results for Nigeria.
    Today however, it was evident that cracks are finally beginning to show up on this famed wall. The aura of invincibility the wall once had is fast fading away.
    The 2 of them should have dealt with a basic route one ball from the CAR half easily. Instead, the 2 Nigerian center-backs were all over the place, falling over themselves in comical fashion, thus the space opened up for Karl Namngamda to slot the ball past Uzoho and become a national hero.
    Yes, the 2 of them are getting older. But they can learn from the Italians Bonucci and Chiellini, who like fine wine keep getting better with age.
    While it’s easy to blame them, and I do blame them for that goal, it remains at the back of my mind that we expect these boys to do their best when their bonuses are yet unpaid. We have no moral justification to expect a worker to do his best when he is being owed.
    The way the whole team approached the game today in the first half was with obvious nonchalance. Like, if the officials don’t want to appreciate our efforts by paying us, why should we stress ourselves on the pitch? The attitude changed in the second half, but they unfortunately ran out of ideas and time.
    So yes, the defeat is not attributable to the Oyibo Wall alone. The whole team must bear the blame.
    Indeed, a day to forget for the Oyibo Wall and the team as a whole. Let’s hope they come back stronger in subsequent games.

    Balogun is the only one decent of the two but he does not have the strength and athleticism required challenge African strikers anymore… we don the tell una for long say Ekong no good but una no go hear… See the job Umeruo and Awaziem did against Cape Verde? Rohr is just another replica of Berti Voghts… rigid as always German bunch… ROHR had 90minutes against a minnow like CAR whose goalscorer and only one of his country’s few professional was a 4th Division France-based footballer… yet, he Rohr was as confused as a cornered fraud… hahaha. Karl Namganda has embarrassed a country of over 200million population… Some slaves will still worshipping Rohr after this capitualtion… Some Africans loved to be slaves aswear!

  • I disagree,awaziem is far far better than balogun,see the blunder a Rangers player committed with his head in our 18yrd box. Ahhhhh !! This CAR team are tactically better than us.we r just kicking the ball into our opponent area,hoping for them to make mistakes,erooo oo! No single ball sense on the ground…Rohr should pls collect his 28 million per month salary and go. Enough!!!

  • Rohr’s rigidity is destroying him. In an away game awaziem and omeruo did well. With what awaziem is doing today, he should just step in to that defence.

    Oshimen needs to be talked to. He made us lose this match. You don’t take a shot from that distance when you should have controlled the ball and move in to the opponents area. To me he is the cause of the defeat.

    He also failed to convert a clear headed gaol too. Well let us call it a bad day.

    But I don’t think they can win the second match in Cameroon.

    If they fail to qualify for the world cup it is their fault.

    I think also that rohr has tried to time he should take his leave. He is too rigid.

    On igalo, even igjalo misses good chances.

    I don’t see him as a better striker than oshimen.

    The coach only needs to talk to oshimen or becnh him in the next march to out some senses into his head. But the rigid rohr won’t do that.

    • MAJOR FLEX 2 weeks ago

      Osimhen has the potential to be the best striker in the world, because of his God given gift ‘massive physical attribute and crazy reaction time’ but small things like this make him look like a sissy, i don’t know, is it pressure? Guy beat your marker na, beat am, God has given you the gift to do it easily, do am e no hard for you, do am.

    • pompei 2 weeks ago

      Yes indeed. All our strikers let us down big time yesterday.
      Our striking department is supposed to be the strongest part of our team. It didn’t look like that yesterday!

  • Gowetok 2 weeks ago

    The Napoli coach has change Osihmens mode of making runs and general play to suite his philosophy. He was not like this at lille .

  • Ajasco 2 weeks ago

    I love Nigerian fans, they will always say what’s in their mind no matter what e.g if super eagles win, ‘ha the eagles did not play well but won,’ ‘or I don’t like the way they are passing/pressing,’ or ‘Rorh substitution was late’ etc. And if the SUPER EAGLES lose,ha ‘Rorh must go,’ ‘Oyinbo wall is old,’ or ‘Osimhen Doesn’t know how to dribble’ etc.

    Please sir/ma in life generally both success and failure have it’s attended lessons, in the SUPER EAGLES case the following should be noted
    1. No matter the opposition, prepare well. The eagles barely had few days to prepare for this particular match

    2. Always respect your opposition even if it’s rated 1000 in fifa rankings. The eagles were overconfident and they paid for it

    3. Watch your opponent matches no matter the rankings, know their strong and weak point. I am sure (maybe wrong) CAR matches were not viewed by the eagles

    4. Every team is beatable including the number 1 ranked team in the world and that includes the eagles
    5. Take your chances when it comes the eagles did not took their chances yesterday if they did it would have been a different story altogether

    6 Be considerate and focus even in defeat show true sportsmanship, shake hands lift your fellow teammates who are down encourage them and learn the lessons in such failure and move on. Truly speaking my beloved SUPER EAGLES were not ‘sportmanly’ in defeat yesterday
    7. Don’t dwell too much on your loss/success. The eagles should not think too much on the defeat learn your lesson and move on. Better days are ahead

    Oga Rorh don’t loose focus learn the lesson and move on. I believe you know what to do.

    All those calling for a change, in as much everyone has an entitlement to personal opinion, let’s be careful the kind of change we need. Thanks
    Ride on beloved SUPER DUPER EAGLE of my Father Land Nigeria, you will bounce back in a Great way.
