Completesports.com’s ADEBOYE AMOSU appraises the performance of Super Falcons players in the 2-0 win against South Korea – their second Group A clash of the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup at the Stade des Alpes, Grenoble on Wednesday, June 12 2019.
CHIAMAKA NNADOZIE 8/10
The young goalkeeper got the nod ahead of the more experienced Tochukwu Oluehi and she proved equal to the big task. She produced a number of key saves in the game and was one of the key reasons the African champions kept a clean sheet in the game.
NGOZI EBERE 7/10
She was a delight to watch in the game. Defended well and supported the attack dutifully.
OSINACHI OHALE 6/10
An improved showing from her below par performance in the Super Falcons first game against
ONOME EBI 6/10
Gave the away too easily a number of times in the first half but improved after the break.
CHINAZA UCHENDU 7/10
Superb on the ball and performed her defensive task well for Super Falcons. Surely deserve a starting berth in the next game against France on basis of this performance.
CHIDINMA OKEKE 7/10
Worked hard in midfield and was one of the star performers for Nigeria in the game. Assisted Asisat Oshoala for the Super Falcons’ second goal.
NGOZI OKOBI 6/10
Looked sloppy in the first half but improved after the break.
RITA CHIKWELU 6/10
Didn’t positively affect the game much. Her long ball was deflected into the net by Korea Republic’s Kim Duyeon for the Super Falcons’ first goal of the game.
FRANCISCA ORDEGA 7/10
Started the game well but fizzled out a little bit after the break. She was replaced by Anam Imo in the second half.
ASISAT OSHOALA 7/10
Scored a great goal and could have gotten another one. It was a below par showing earlier in the match from the FC Barcelona Ladies star before her goal . Won the official woman of the match award.
DESIRE OPARANOZIE 7/0
Performed well and deservedly spent the entire 90 minutes on the pitch.
HALIMATU AYINDE 5/10
Helped keep things tight in the midfield after replacing Chinaza Uchendu.
ANAM IMO 4/10
Came in for Francisca Ordega late in the game and helped push the Koreans with her dribbling skills.
Not Rated. Played a cameo role after replacing Oshoala in the 83rd minute.
