Super Eagles Rating Vs Sudan

Super Eagles Rating Vs Sudan

VINCENT ENYEAMA:
He was not really tested by the Sudanese in the early part of the game but was called to action in the 26th minute and had no problem saving a straight shot. He cannot be blamed for the goal conceded as he was left exposed. (6/10)

OGENYI ONAZI:
Naturally a midfielder, Onazi was drafted to the right-full back position in place of Efe Ambrose but struggled as he occasionally drifted into the midfield thereby exposing the team to attacks from the right side. He was composed in the second half and made sure nothing went past him. (6)

KENNETH OMERUO:
He struggled to contain the Sudanese big forward early on and got involved in a scuffle with a Sudanese player prior to a free-kick for the visitors. He was culpable alongside his defensive partner for the Sudanese goal. He put up an improved performance in the second half. (5)

GODFREY OBOABONA:
Just like his defensive partner, Oboabona found it difficult dealing with the occasional attacks of the Sudanese and was nowhere when the Sudanese equalized. He improved in the second half as they were able to keep the opponents at bay. (5)

JUWON OSHANIWA:
He was brought in for Elderson Echiejile and was always bombing forward to assist the attack. Almost scored for the Eagles in the 20th minute but couldn’t connect to a Mikel Obi pass. He will have to do more to wrestle the left-back position from Echiejile. (5)

MIKEL OBI:
He came alive in the second half after a lethargic first half by providing the assist for the Eagles first goal. He showed signs of improvement compared to past games. (6)

RAHEEM LAWAL:
He had an average game as he struggled to keep up with the tempo and was withdrawn in the 65th minute for Sone Aluko. (4)

HOPE AKPAN:
A surprise inclusion by the coach. He didn’t really add much to the team and will need much playing time to prove his worth. (5)

AHMED MUSA:
He emerged the hero of the day for the Eagles as he netted in the 48th and 89th minutes to help the team to their first three points of the qualifying campaign. (7)

AARON SAMUEL:
He showed presence in the early part of the game with two strikes which went off target. His persistence finally paid off in the second half when he pounced on a loose ball to put the Eagles 2-1 ahead.(6)

EMMANUEL EMENIKE:
He was partly to blame for the Sudanese equalizer as his unnecessary foul led to the goal. He should have extended the Eagles lead after a brilliant run but decided to shoot instead of laying the ball for a well positioned team-mate. (5)

SUBSTITUTES:
SONE ALUKO
He replaced Raheem Lawal and injected pace in the Eagles attack. He had an 80th minute free-kick saved by the Sudanese keeper. (6)

GBOLAHAN SALAMI
He came off the bench in the 86th minute for Lawal but didn’t create or threaten the defensive third of the opponent. (5)

OSAGUONA IGHODARO
Was a 91st minute substitute for two-goal hero Ahmed Musa but didn’t have any impact in the game which had already been won and lost. (5)

COMMENTS

WORDPRESS: 4
  • He had no impact but you gave him 5, what a joke of a rating?

    If Musa who scored the first and last goal, ensuring that the match was dead and buried can get only a 7, then how many goals would he have scored to get a 9 over 10, or even 10 over 10?
