By Adeboye Amosu:
CARL IKEME 8/10
Proved a capable replacement for the indisposed skipper of the side, Vincent Enyeama. The well built stopper made three brilliant saves in the game and was the remain reason why the Super Eagles earned a share of the spoils.
SOLOMON KWAMBE 3/10
The Warri Wolves defender struggled to cope with the pace of the game and was exposed a number of times by the fast and skilful Tanzania strikers.
KENNETH OMERUO 4/10
Omeruo had a torrid time trying to contain the opposing defenders. He looked rusty and was caught out of position especially in the second half when the Tanzanians increased the tempo in search of a match winner.
WILLIAM TROOST- EKONG 4/10
Like his central defensive partner, Troost Ekong put up a below par display in what was his second competitive appearance for the Super Eagles.
CHRISTAIN MADU 4/10
The left back never really made an impact in the game.He struggled to perform his defensive duties and did little to support the attack.
IZUNNA UZOCHUKWU 3/10
The Russia based midfielder lasted the entire duration of the game, but was largely anonymous on the pitch. A tough debut for a player touted as one of the future prospects for the Super Eagles..
OBIORAH NWANKWO 5/10
Had little support from his collegues in the middle of the pack, but did his best to ward off the threat of the Taifa Stars attacking players. An average performance from a player who last featured for Nigeria at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa.
HARUNA LUKMAN 2/10
Haruna failed to make an impact in the game and was rightly replaced in the 35th minute by Sylvester Igboun. He looked out of sorts and also struggled to cope with the pace of the game.
MOSES SIMON 4/10
The Belgium based forward had the best chance to put the Super Eagles ahead in the first half, but fluffed the opportunity. He troubled the Taifa Stars defence a couple of times, however his poor judgement and finishing let him down.
AHMED MUSA 3/10
The stand in captain struggled to get into the game. Proved to be an inconsistent performer once again as he failed to lift the team despite his experience at the international level.
EMMANUEL EMENIKE 4/10
The bulky forward toiled hard to make an impression on his return to the team after missing the match day one fixture against Chad, but made little success. The United Arab Emirates based striker had little or no support from the midfielders, dropping deep to get ball a couple of times. He was replaced in the 61st minute by Anthony Ujah.
SYLVESTER IGBOUN 3/10
Replaced the fumbling Haruna Lukman in the 35th minute. He was played in an unfamiliar no.10 position and like his collegues gave a below par showing.
ANTHONY UJAH 3/10
Came in for Emmanuel Emenike in the 61st minute and did little to change the complexion of the game.
EMEM EDUOk 2/10
The Esperance forward came in for the misfiring Moses Simon 21 minutes from time.He also couldn’t make any meaningful impact like his other collegues who started the game from the bench.
