CARL IKEME 6/10
Had little or nothing to do in the game as he was rarely tested by the Tanzanians.
MUSA MOHAMMED 6/10
The right-back put up a solid display in what was his first competitive game for the Super Eagles. He will need to work on his final ball though.
WILLIAM TROOST- EKONG 7/10
A fine performance from the centre- back. Made a few interceptions and formed a good partnership with Leon Balogun at the heart of the Super Eagles defence.
LEON BALOGUN 7/10
Balogun was booked late in game, the only blight in what was an efficient performance from the versatile defender.
ELDERSON ECHIEJILE 6/10
Not one of his best games for the Super Eagles. The left- back offered little going forward but performed his defensive task dutifully.
OGENYI ONAZI 6/10
Shielded the back four well and made forays upfront to support the attack.
MIKEL OBI 8/10
The Chelsea midfielder was his side’s most influential player before his substitution. Mikel was also unlucky not to score in the encounter.
KELECHI IHEANACHO 9/10
The youngster capped a beautiful performance by also scoring the winning goal, a stunning shot from outside the box.
VICTOR MOSES 6/10
Put up a lively performance in the game but fluffled a lot of goal scoring opportunities.
AHMED MUSA 5/10
Once again, Ahmed Musa struggled to impress in the green and white of Nigeria as he posted another disappointing performance.
ODION IGHALO 5/10
The forward failed to replicate his club form on the international scene once again as he laboured without success to get a goal in the game.
WILFRED NDIDI 5/10
Replaced Mikel in the 63rd minute and did a good job in helping his side maintain their dominance in the game.
BROWN IDEYE 5/10
Returned to the side after a long absence but did little in his cameo appearance.
