DANIEL AKPEYI 7/10

Had little or nothing to do in the game. Looked assured in goal and distributed the ball well.

OLA AINA 6/10

Defended wellz but didn’t offer much going forward. He was replaced at half time by Chidozie Awaziem.

KENNETH OMERUO 7/10

Looked solid in the 45 minutes he spent on the pitch. Proved he is ready for a starting berth in the team.

LEON BALOGUN 7/10

The Brighton & Hove Albion defender performed admirably in the game. Stood up to the threat of the Zimbabwe forward Knowledge Musona.

JAMILU COLLINS 7/10

Came close to getting the winner for the Super Eagles when he was put through clean on goal by substitute Ahmed Musa but wasted the chance.

JOHN MIKEL OBI 7/10

Controlled things in the middle of the park and also helped in the defence as well.

OGHENEKARO ETEBO 6/10

Started the game brightly but fizzled out afterwards. He also complemented Mikel’s in the midfield.

ALEX IWOBI 6/10

Gave the ball away a couple of times. He will need to show more consistency to prove he is ready for a big role in the Super Eagles.

SAMUEL CHUKWUEZE 7/10L

ooked lively for most part of the game. Came close to breaking the deadlock in the first half with a fierce shot from outside the box.

SAMUEL KALU 6/10

Didn’t make much impact in the game. He will need to do more in subsequent games to prove he is worthy of a starting berth in the team.

PAUL ONUACHU 6/10
Wasted a good chance to put Nigeria ahead early on in what was a disappointing display.

Not Rated as he only has a cameo role after replacing captain John Mikel Obi in the 85th minute
