Nigeria booked their passage to the Round of 16 of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations with a hard fought 1-0 win over Guinea.
Izuchukwu Okosi here rates the performances of the Super Eagles players.
Chidozie Awaziem : The Porto defender was deployed in the right back position and he did creditably well in doing his primary duties but he offered few support going forward. 7/10.
Ola Aina : The Torino wingback had a more subdued performance against Guinea but he still had a decent day. 7/10.
Kenneth Omeruo : Leganes defender Omeruo salvaged a win for Nigeria with a glancing header in the second half. He made vital clearances also. 9/10.
Leon Balogun : Brighton’s Balogun was played at the expense of William Troost-Eking and he did commendably well. Good interceptions and aerial advantage were his strengths. 7/10.
Wilfred Ndidi : Ndidi shielded the defence well and never gave Naby Keita breathing space. Good performance. 7/10.
Peter Etebo : Booked in the second half for a foul but he had a good day pairing Ndidi in the defensive midfield. 8/10.
