Nigeria 1-0 Senegal: How U-23 Eagles Rated Versus Young Lions

Nigeria 1-0 Senegal: How U-23 Eagles Rated Versus Young Lions

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.

SUBSTITUTES
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.

    Resilient performance by the team. Great work from Emmanuel Daniel and manoeuvring efforts from the coach.
