Completesportsnigeria.com’s ADEBOYE AMOSU rates the Super Eagles individually after their disappointing 0-0 World Cup qualifier draw against Swaziland…
CARL IKEME 7/10
Proved a worthy choice in goal for the Super Eagles once again. The England-based goalkeeper was rarely tested in the first half, but rose to the occasion to deny the hosts from scoring in the 61st minute.
SHEHU ABDULLAHI 5/10
The bereaved defender struggled to make an impact in the game. Coach Sunday Oliseh will need to look for a better player to man the right-back position.
EFE AMBROSE 6/10
The Celtic of Scotland player gave a solid performance in the first half, but fizzled out in the second stanza as the Sihlangu poured forward in search of a decisive goal.
GODFREY OBOABONA 5/10
Like his central defensive partner, Godfrey Oboabona struggled to cope with the pace of the hosts in the second half. The Turkey-based defender who was booked in the 44th minute for a reckless challenge, will need to do more in future to keep his place in the team.
ELDERSON ECHIEJILE 7/10
He was no doubt the Super Eagles best defender on the night. Echiejile performed his defensive duties well and supported the attack at will.
OGENYI ONAZI 6/10
The Lazio of Italy man was denied a goal in the 58th minute when his well struck free kick hit the post. He put up an above average performance in the game.
MIKEL OBI 6/10
Not one of his best performances in the green and white shirt of Nigeria. He struggled to dominate the midfield and his final ball was not top notch on a number of occasions. He was replaced by Obafemi Martins in 71st minute.
SYLVESTER IGBOUN 3/10
Put up a disapointing display and was duly replaced at half-time by Rabiu Ibrahim.
AHMED MUSA 4/10
The Super Eagles skipper was largely anonymous for the better part of the game. Another disappointing display by the CSKA Moscow winger.
MOSES SIMON 5/10
Toiled so hard all evening to make an impression, but with little success. He was surprisingly left on the pitch for the entire duration of the game.
ODION IGHALO 5/10
Ighalo was marked out of the game by the Swaziland defenders who never really allowed him to make any impact on the night.
RABIU IBRAHIM 2/10
The petite midfielder came in for Igboun after the break, but was hauled off in the 65th minute as he put up a below par showing.
KELECHI IHEANACHO 3/10
Came in for Rabiu Ibrahim in the 65th minute, but did little to change the game in favour of the Super Eagles.
OBAFEMI MARTINS 3/10
Not a dream return to international football by Martins as he was not near his best after replacing Mikel 19 minutes before the end of the game.
