HOW EAGLES RATED VS CONCO BRAZZAVILLE

HOW EAGLES RATED VS CONCO BRAZZAVILLE

VINCENT ENYEAMA-8/10
Proved a reliable force again as he thwarted the Congolese efforts at getting a goal in the encounter.Enyeama’s crucial penalty save was one major reason why the Super Eagles are on the verge of booking a ticket to Equatorial Guinea 2015 to defend the crown they won last year in South Africa.

EFE AMBROSE-3/10
The Celtic defender was the worst Nigerian player on the pitch and the Red Devils forwards took delight in launching their attacks through his side of the defence.

GODFREY OBOABONA-7/10
Had a difficult task in curtailing the opposing defenders but put up a solid showing in the absence of his regular central defensive pairing, Kenneth Omeruo.

AZUBUIKE EGUWUEKE—7/10
Picked as replacement for the injured Kenneth Omeruo. The warri Wolves defender was jittery in the early part of the game but recovered to put up an average performance.

JUWON OSHANIWA-6/10
Retained his place in the team after getting selected ahead of Elderson Echiejile in the last game against Sudan and did enough not to disappoint the selectors.

HOPE AKPAN-4/10
The Reading man didn’t really acquit himself in the task of playing in a huge game like this and was duely replaced by Sone Aluko early in the second half after picking up an injury.

OGENYI ONAZI-5/10
Not one of his best games for the African Champions as he struggled to assert himself in the middle of the park.

JOHN OBI MIKEL-6/10
The Chelsea of England midfielder started the game brightly but fizzled out as the encounter wore on. He provided the assist for Emmanuel Emenike’s penalty which resulted in Nigeria‘s first goal of the match.

AHMED MUSA-5/10
Failed to replicate his match winning heroics of the match day four. Will need to add more consistency to his game.

EMMANUEL EMENIKE-5/10
Won the penalty that was converted by Ikechukwu Uche for his side’s first goal but once again had a below par game for the West Africans.

IKECHUKWU UCHE-8-10
Justified his recall to the team by scoring the first goal. He will certainly play a big role for the Super Eagles in Uyo against South Africa.

SUBSTITUTE
SONE ALUKO-6/10
He came in for the injured Hope Akpan and added more bite to the Eagles attack. The Hull City of England star provided the assist for the crucial second goal.

AARON SAMUEL-5/10
The China based forward once again justified his inclusion into the game by scoring the important second goal for the Super Eagles few minutes after coming as a replacement for Emmanuel Emenike.

GBOLAHAN SALAMI-4/10
Added more bite to the attacking department, after replacing the misfiring Ahmed Musa late on.

    I am VERY happy with the victory;happy that Ik Uche scored in the match. The new players really need to step up because the old players aren’t ready to quit yet. Ik Uche has justified himself,let Keshi invite other players;Martins,Obasi,Haruna and even Iheanacho,and let them justify themselves…God bless Nigeria

  • I PREDICTED THAT CONGO IS NOT OUR MATE WHEN FOOTBALL IS MENTIONED. OUR MOTIVATING FACTOR WAS THAT IF WE EVEN DRAW WITH CONGO WE ARE GONE AND SO A 2-3 GOAL WAS EXPECTED AND NIGERIA SCORED 2 GOALS. WE ARE IN CONTROL OF OUR FATE NOW TO AN EXTENT. WE JUST NEED A WIN OF ANY SCORE. LET CONGO BEAT SUDAN WITH 100 GOALS AND WE WIN WITH 1 GOAL WE WILL STILL QUALIFY. ONLY ONE TEAM IS NEEDED FOR THE 3RD BEST AND THE ODDS FAVOUR GUINEA. SO NIGERIA NEED TO WIN SOUTH AFRICA BY ALL MEANS. ENYEAMA, AZUBUIKE UCHE, GODFREY, JIWON, SAMUEL, ALUKO, SALAMI ARE MUST STARTERS. CAN MOSES BE INVITED? MUSA, MIKEL, EFE SHOULD UP THEIR GAMES SERIOUSLY SPEAKING. SOUTH AFRICA MUST FALL. I PREDICT 2-0,

    Wht…! what sort of rating is this. Ik uche’s only meaningful contribution in 90mins was that penalty and u give him 8…? Aaron Samuel came in and scored a world class insurance goal and u give him 5….?

    Eyeama to me is the man of the match. Aaron is the super star of the day. I never thought of Keshi collecting money from any player, pride is his undoing. Heanacho,Awoniyi and the golden eaglet goalkeeper should have gone to the world cup. Those three players and Uche brothers could have just make Keshi one of the best coach in the world now. No country can face these sets of players and pressure could not have been much on Eyeama. Keshi should do away with egos and prove to.the world that,we are are true Champion.
