Completesportsnigeria.com’s ADEBOYE AMOSU appraises the individual showing of the Home-based Super Eagles players in the 3-1 win over Equatorial Guinea in their final Group C game of the 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN) on Tuesday night, January 23 2018.
IKECHUKWU EZENWA 6/10
Conceded a goal for the first time in the competition. The Enyimba goalkeeper was virtually on holiday in the game.
OSAS OKORO 7/10
A good performance from the versatile right-back who can also play as a winger. Defended well and supported the attack at will. Osas’ sublime cross was headed in by Anthony Okpotu for Nigeria’s opening goal.
STEPHEN EZE 6/10
The centre-back was at his usual best in the game and combined well with Kalu Orji at the heart of the defence.
KALU ORJI 6/10
Did a good job in the defence along with his partner, Stephen Eze.
DANIEL JAMES 5/10
Kept his place in the team despite uninspiring displays in the two previous games. Another below par outing from the left-back.
EMEKA ATULOMA 5/10
An average performance from the Rivers United midfielder who will do well to improve his passing skill.
IFEANYI IFEANYI 5/10
The talented midfielder has not hit the required firm expected of him so far at the tournament, and was duly substituted by Rabiu Ali in the second half.
DAYO OJO 8/10
Great display from the Sunshine Stars midfielder who capped a superb outing with a cracking goal.
EMEKA OGBUGH 5/10
Toiled hard to impress in the game without much success. He was subbed off in the 78th minute, replaced by Nur Mohammed.
SUNDAY FALEYE 5/10
The young forward missed a sitter late in the first half. He was not at his usual best against the Nzalang National.
ANTHONY OKPOTU 6/10
An improved performance from the forward who got Nigeria’s opening goal from a well placed header.
RABIU ALI 5 /10
The veteran midfielder who came in as a second half substitute and scored his side’s third goal from the spot.
NURA MOHAMMED 3/10
Made little contribution following his introduction in the place of the ineffective Emeka Ogbugh.
GABRIEL OKECHUKWU 3/10
Came close to registering a goal late in game but couldn’t connect with Osas Okoro’s cross.
