By Adeboye Amosu:
EMMANUEL DANIEL 8/10
Daniel was Nigeria's best performer in the game. Aside from saving a penalty late in the first half, he made a number of vital saves that kept his side in the game and helped them win it at the end of the day.
SINCERE SETH 5/10
Put up an average showing in the game and yet to get near his impressive showing in the first game against Mali.
CHIZOBA AMAEFULE 6/10
Looked solid at the back for the first time in the competition, though his lack of pace was evident a number of times.
SEGUN ODUDUWA 5/10
Looked shaky at the start, but recovered well to put up an average showing.
NDIFREKE EFFIONG 5/10
Seems contend with performing his defensive duties and offered little going forward.
GODSPOWER ANIEFIOK 3/10
Has never really impressed in the competition and was duly substituted in the 62nd minute by Victor Osimhen.
USMAN MOHAMMED 5/10
The FC Taraba midfielder was nowhere near his best in the game. He obviously missed his midfield partner, Azubuike Okechukwu
OGHENEKARO ETEBO 7/10
Led the team well in the absence of the suspended skipper of the side, Azubuike Okechukwu, and also scored the winning goal from the spot.
TIONGOLI TONBARA 5/10
Fought hard to make an impression in the game with little success, but was always tracking back to help the defence.
KUFRE EBONG 5/10
Another poor display from the Warri Wolves forward who has so far failed to justify his inclusion in the team
JUNIOR AJAYI 5/10
Lacked support upfront and never looked like adding to his two goals tally in the competition.
VICTOR OSIMHEN 6/10
Came in for the ineffective Godspower Aniefiok and proved his class by getting close to scoring off a header in the 85th minute.
BATURE YARO 3/10
A late substitution for Kufre Ebong. Helped his side see off the game and book a ticket to Rio 2016 Olympics.
