Super Eagles Player Ratings Vs Niger

By James Agberebi:

CARL IKEME:
Unlike in the Tanzania game, Carl Ikeme was a by-stander for most of this match. Made his first real save of the match when he stopped a long range shot in the 57th minute. (6/10)

SOLOMON KWAMBE:
Kept his place in the team but didn’t really offer much, especially going forward. Committed a lot of clumsy fouls which would have been capitalised on by a better team. (5/10)

GODFREY OBOABONA:
Replaced William Troost-Ekong in defence and put up a good performance. Marshalled the defence alongside Kenneth Omeruo really well as the Nigeriens rarely created any clear-cut chance. (6/10)

KENNETH OMERUO:
Just like his defensive partner, Omeruo put up a better performance compared to the game against Tanzania. Seems to play better with Oboabona in the team. (6/10)

CHIMA AKAS:
Like Kwambe, didn’t offer much going forward as he was content to perform his defensive duties. Gave away possession a couple of times and made some sloppy passes. (5/10)

USMAN MOHAMMED:
Was unarguebly the best player on the pitch for the Eagles. Helped both in defence and in attack, was strong in the tackle, made key passes. Was substituted before the start of the second half for Prince Aggrey. (7/10)

NWANKWO OBIORA:
Didn’t really get involved especially in the first half, but came out of his shell in the second half. Held on to the ball well and made short, simple passes to available team-mates. (6/10)

RABIU IBRAHIM:
Was in for some rough treatment from the Nigeriens in the early part of the game, but was involved in some of the Eagles’ best moves. Needs to cut out unnecesssary dribbles in order to avoid rash tackles. (6/10)

AHMED MUSA:
Put the Eagles ahead after converting from the penalty spot. Should have made a quick pass to Anthony Ujah in a counter-attack move but delayed his pass. Came off for Moses Simon in the 63rd minute. (6/10)

SYLVESTER IGBONU:
Would have doubled the Eagles lead in the 28th minute, but his shot came off the keeper and went over for a corner-kick. Was full of energy as he tried to initiate attacks for the team. (6/10)

ANTHONY UJAH:
Was brought down in the 18-yard box which earned the Eagles the penalty that was converted by Musa. His only other effort was a weak free-kick which was easily saved by the Nigerien keeper. (5/10)

SUBSTITUTES
PRINCE AGGREY:
Replaced Usman Mohammed before the start of the second half but didn’t really justify his inclusion in the team. (4/10)

EMMANUEL EMENIKE:
Took the place of Ujah but didn’t really threaten the Nigerien defence. Has a lot of convincing to do in order to earn the trust of the coaching crew for the striking position. (5/10)

MOSES SIMON:
Made the game safe for the Eagles after he benefitted from a misplaced pass and struck a left-foot shot which flew past the keeper. Was a handful for the visitors when he came on for Musa, as his constant runs from the left-wing was a worry for the Nigeriens. (6/10)

BATURE YARO:
Replaced Igbonu but didn’t offer much to the team. (5/10)

WILLIAM TROOST-EKONG:
Was introduced for Kwambe with 10 minutes remaining but didn’t really do much. Has a battle on his hands to displace either Omeruo or Oboabona in one of the central defensive roles. (5/10)

IKECHUKWU EZENWA:
With 10 minutes left, he replaced Ikeme but had little to do. (5/10)

    The rating is flawed. Emenike should have below while that Simeon should have be a point or two higher.
