Completesports.com’s ADEBOYE AMOSU rates the performance of Golden Eaglets, players-by-player, in their 1-1 draw against Uganda – matchday-3 Group A clash at the 2019 U-17 Africa Cup of Nations in Tanzania. Nigeria won the group on seven points to advance to the semi-finals and also secured qualification for the 2019 FIFA U-17 World Cup in Brazil.
SUNDAY STEPHEN 7/10
He was largely untested in the game as he was well protected by his defence. Stephen was not at fault for Uganda’s goal scored by substitute Alou John.
SHEDRACK TANKO 7/10
Put up a good display in the game. Performed his defensive task dutifully and supported the attack well too.
OGAGA ODUKO 7/10
A solid performance from the centre-back. He coped well with the threat of the Ugandans and barely put a foot wrong in the game.
CLEMENT IKENNA 7/10
Continued his partnership with Ogaga Oduko in the heart of Nigeria’s defence. Did his job well alongside Oduko.
DAVID ISHAYA 6/10
His mistimed clearance led to Uganda’s goal scored by substitute Alou John, otherwise it was an above average showing from the defender.
SAMSON TIJANI 7/10
Cool, calm and collected. Tijani led by example and put another fine performance in the middle of the pack.
MAYOWA ABAYOMI 6/10
Not in his true element in the game. Picked up an early yellow card and was substituted by Fawaz Abdullahi at the stroke of half-time.
OLATOMI OLANIYAN 7/10
Lively all through the game. He has been a top performer for the Golden Eaglets in the competition.
IBRAHEEM JABAAR 7/10
Scored the equalising goal in what was a fine display for the Golden Eaglets.
AKINWUNMI AMOO 6/10
The man of the match in Nigeria’s opening game win against Tanzania was wasteful in the match missing a number of good chances.
WISDOM UBANI 7/10
Unlucky not to get on the score sheet with the Uganda goalkeeper proving his achilles heel.
FAWAZ ABDULLAHI 5/10
Never got into the grip of the game following his introduction for Mayowa Abayomi.
OLAKUNLE OLUSEGUN 5/10
Contributed positively in the game after taking the place of Akinwunmi Amoo.
