Nigeria Vs Cameroon: Player Rating by Nobody: 8:07pm On Sep 01, 2017
A fantastic performance from the Super Eagles. Embarrassed the African champions to the utter shock of everyone. Started slowly with Cameroun calling the shots for the first 15 minutes before Eagles got into the game and got one of their best results in two decades.

Anyway, here is how the individual players performed.

1, EZENWA
Fantastic saves. Uncommon confidence. Good entertainment. When you consider the fact that the jeeper at the other end was the keeper that was in post for the Ajax team that got to Europa final just last year, you have to give the home-based Nigerian kudos. 8/10

2, SHEHU
The former (?) Kano Pillars player who plays can also play as a DM did good job as a left back and like he is gotten the shirt for keeps. Good use of ball. Good connection with the Genk man at the right wing with him. Good game. 7/10

3, ECHIEJILE
Age catching up in him but decent performance. Didn't help attack much but did a decent job in defence. Did a couple of stoppages, but can do better in speed. 5/10

4, ONAZI
Onazi was left at the front of the back 4 while the other DM, Ndidi, played deeper into the midfield, for the bettet part of the game. Hard marking as usual, even though a couple of missteps. Pushed forward ince and got the assist for the final goal. 6/10

5, EKONG

Initially struggled with the attack of the Indomitable lions, with a couple of slips. Lucky not to have given away a goaling the opening minutes. Later picked up. Good job in defence to stop Vincent Abubakar and the daring attavk of the Lions. 6/10

6, BALOGUN
Leon combined well with Ekong to stop the admittedly ineffectively attack of the men from Cameroun. Looked like the better of the two central defenders. Neat job too. 7/10

7, SIMON
Was largely anonymous in the first half. Not able to do his trademark tricks, but a moment of brilliance from him got the Nigerian team the thirsd goal. 6/10

8, NDIDI
Alongside Mikel, ruled the midfield. Tried pushing forward a couple of times too. Good support for Mikel. 7/10

9, IGHALO
I was initially worried by the way he was pocketed by the Camerounian defenders and was second-guessing the one-man attack system. But he scored a typical number 9 goal - chance comes, take it. Good work in cutting the Camerounian defender and world class finish. Good work in selking dummy to the two Camerounian markers for the second goal too. His breaking the duck helped bring SE back into the game. 8/10

10, MIKEL

Well, again, showed class. A goal and an assist, and the initiator of the attack that got another goal, what else can one ask for. Clearly showed the France-based Camerounian midfielders he wasn't rheir mate. Good leadership too. 9/10.

11, MOSES
Another class display. Proved he was a senior man. Missed one or two scorin chancea but his goal and overall contribution cannot be donwplayed. He and Mikel were clearly the moat creative on the field. Little wonder the team went almost flat again after the exit of the duo. 8/10

SUBS

IHEANACHO
Good positioning to score the final goal. 6/10

AGU
Tried his best to continue where Mikel stopped. Not bad in control of the midfield. 6/10

MUSA
Unrated. Not seen.

COACH ROHR
Good job. Great selection, especially with cjoice of keeper and starting Mikel and benching Musa and Iheanacho, which many coaches may not have done. 8/10

Lalasticlala - 10/10

Nice work Jarus ! but not satisfied with Leon's rating ,he deserves 8.5/10 , he made the cameroonian striker looked ordinary , made a couple of good clearance ...


Moses deserves 9.5/10 .

I think Leon Balogun deserves a 9/10, he was world class.
The least rating should be 7/10, the boys were really super and remember Cameroon are the reigning African champions.
Commentators -1/10 angry

Disagree with Leon Balogun's rating.

That guy deserve nothing less than 8/10

In fact Buhari should appoint him as the Minister of Defence of the Federal Republic.

Na so, dem really try today sha


You got Onazi right, he was the only player I didn't notice throughout the entire game, I mean, I didn't even see him at all, until he got the assist.

Nigeria has a way of casting tickets sha, person stake 10k on top u1.5 in half time, another, 20k on top u2.5 in full time.....

I still dey laf both of them grin grin grin grin grin

Mikel / Leon
Moses
Ighalo

In that order.
Its however scary that we are yet to produce a potential replacement for Mikel in the event of his retirement, as I am yet to see any midfielder capable of dictating and coordinating the the play apart from him.

I will give balogun 10 and moses 9. I would have given the keeper 9 but his playfulness and nonchalance takes him to 7!! Well done lads.
