England 2 - 1 Nigeria : Super Eagles Players rating


The Super Eagles of Nigeria lost to the Three Lions of England for the second time in 24 years after a 1-0 loss in 1994 and a 0-0 draw in 2002.

90Minutesgoal.com rates the individual performances (on a scale of 1-10) of each player of the Super Eagles against England.

Francis Uzoho 7/10 (Goalkeeper)
Tje 19-years-old made two crucial saves in the first half to keep the Eagles alive in this game. He is now clearly the country’s No 1 going into Russia 2018.
Brian Idowu 5/10
He was a lot brighter when he played as a wingback in the second half after a subdued showing in the first period as England tore through the Eagles defence at will.
Shehu Abdullahi 5/10
Looked a lot more assured at rightback, somehow managing to keep out the rampant Three Lions in the first half.
Ebuehi 5/10
Looked a lot smarter and adventurous when he replaced Shehu and played as a right wingback in the second half.

Leon Balogun 5/10
A second straight game where he failed to convince. Must be a big concern for all those who know the high level he has been playing before this dip in form.
Omeruo 6/10
Steadied the defence when he was introduced. His experience will come in handy in Russia.
Ekong 6/10
The best defender on the day, did what was expected of him.
Onazi 4/10
He was poor and tongues are already wagging about his continued selection after he failed to inspire even against DR Congo on Monday.
Made at least two big saves in the first half to keep the Eagles alive in this game. He is now clearly the country’s No 1 going into Russia 2018.
Brian Idowu 5/10
He was a lot brighter when he played as a wingback in the second half after a subdued showing in the first period as England tore through the Eagles defence at will.
Shehu Abdullahi 5/10
Looked a lot more assured at rightback, somehow managing to keep out the rampant Three Lions in the first half.
Ebuehi 5/10
Looked a lot smarter and adventurous when he replaced Shehu and played as a right wingback in the second half.
Joel Obi 4/10
The Torino midfielder again failed to impress even as a stop-gap for the recuperating Wilfred Ndidi.
John Ogu 6/10
He fitted in nicely as the third centre-back when Rohr changed the system and played three at the back. His versatility and experience has won him his place on the final squad.
Etebo 6/10
A decent outing as he added some urgency to the Eagles attacking play when he came on in the second half.
Iwobi 8/10 ( Man of Match )


Besides his goal, he was the best player for Nigeria with his whole-hearted performance. He was confident on the ball and not afraid to take on his man.
Victor Moses 5/10
Anonymous for the man widely regarded as the country’s key star.
Ahmed Musa 5/10
Ran his lungs out when he was introduced and once or twice troubled the England defence with his turn of speed.
Mikel 6/10
He tried to keep the Eagles midfield in shape, but as forced to do a lot more after several players around him failed to step up their game.
Ighalo 6/10
His movement kept the England defenders on their toes, but for the main striker he must be increasingly worried he is not getting the goals for this team.
Iheanacho 5/10
He did not contribute a great deal when he came on.

Eagles starting XI vs England – Uzoho, Idowu, Shehu (Ebuehi), Balogun (Omeruo), Ekong – Onazi (Etebo), Joel Obi (Ogu) – Iwobi, Victor Moses (Ahmed Musa), Mikel (Skipper) – Ighalo (Iheanacho)
