2dramasports.com Match Notes & Concerns about the France versus Nigeria encounter


  1. Coach Shaibu Amodu's no complains , wow  5 subs in a friendly game, good job he hardly makes more than 2 per game
  2. Ike Uche " Garri Master" puts on a show and gave the french defense problems
  3. Obinna Nsofor is sinking each game, he needs to leave inter ASAP
  4. Akpala needs to step his game , how many wasted chances did he blow ??
  5. Coach Shaibu needs to get an offensive midfielder ASAP
  6. Why is king Kanu starting , its best to use him as a super sub 20 mins or less
  7. Coach Shaibu should have started Michael Eneramo
  8. Sam Sodje has earned his spot back on the Super Eagles of Nigeria
  9. Good game by Enyeama Vincent  kudos Enyeama Magnet
  10. Osaze was hustling all over the pitch even on defense self wow


Players Rating

Vincent Enyeama : 8
  • Showed why he is the number one choice goalie for Nigeria, he rejected all attempts to Ribéry, Anelka and others
  • The doorman of the Hapoel Tel-Aviv was perfectly up to the task and made some really good saves.One of his best games in green white green.
                                          
Adefemi: 6.5
  • Was not really tested but held his own
  • Defended well and supported the attack. Could not ask more from a FB particularly playing against Ribery. This guy also has stamina. He ran hard the entir game. Can improve on his crosses.

Adeleye : 7
  • Shutdown Benzema all game
  • Got skinned twice recovered expected he was playing against Benzema

Sodje : 6
  • Solid on Defense
  • Made one error but as stated earlier he has earned his spot back on the Super Eagles

Echiejilie : 5.5
  • Not his best game but i have seen better
  • Appeared to tired in mid 2nd half and needs to improve his crossing


Olofinjana: 6.5

  • Contested aerial balls and broke up several plays. His quick decisions on the ball against pressure was also a beauty. Also produced a handful of precisce long range passes including the one that released Uche for the goal setup to Akpala. The next step for him will be to position himself to shoot from distance. There were a few opportunities that came his way but he clearly was not thinking of that.


Kalu Uche : 7
  • Great work rate. Played the playmaker role and was extremely active showing for the ball and closing down Viera and Diarra. Mistraped and mispassed a few too many balls early in the game otherwise would have had a more solid rating. Also needs to make quicker decisions as he was occasionally guilty of bringing the game to a complete halt looking for options.



Osaze : 7.5
  • Tremendous work rate. Actually became a defender in the 2nd half. Actually gets a little carried away with the Nigerian flair and loses the ball more than necessary. If he is going to play wide, needs to improve on his crossing as well. Stop the back heel passing :) 
  • Osaaaaaaaaazzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzeeee na you biko
  • Former Lillois also blasted the French defense with his acceleration and his appeals in the back. (goal.com)

Kanu : No comment ... lol ..... people will hate on me Na Coach Amodu fault -King Kanu na Super Sub 20 mins or less
  • First of all , i respect King Kanu , he is my idol but oga maybe it time to become a super sub off the bench  
  • Replaced by Yusuf @ the 46 minute mark
  • kept our midfield together in the first half, always maintained possession even under pressure and distributed ball forwards. Still very important to our team as a part time player.
  • Na Coach Amodu fault

Ike Uche : 8.5  - Yes 2drama be Ike Uche shrinner and also basher
  • was just outstanding, and the scary thing is, he could even be so much better. For me this was his best game to date for the SE. Constantly was a menace to the French defence. He combined well with Osaze and co. , was taking shots, taking on defenders, laying off passes. Needs to improve on crosses and finishing off attacks. Wonderful skill to earn the goal !!! He needs to play like this all the time.
  • Garri Master  na you biko
  • Getafe striker gave the Blues to spin from one end to another of the game.  He regaled the audience with his speed, his technique impressive and accelerations that have done extensive damage in the French defense.  And we do not even mention the goal where he made almost all the work.. (goal.com)

Akpala : 5.5  -
  • Still not impressed , needs to improve because his time is running short with Obagoal , garri master,yak and big mike around
  • It had the merit of following the action of Uche to include one of the easiest goals of his career. (goal.com)
  • For the second game in a row, really failed to grab the opportunity presented to him. Defended quite a bit, but offered nothing really in attack besides taping in Uche's goal. Is at the bottom of the barrel as far as strikers are concerned now. Enemaro is definately ahead of him.

Akpala : 5.5  -
  • Still not impressed , needs to improve because his time is running short with Obagoal , garri master,yak and big mike around

Ayila : 6  -
  • Decent game, covered well and even got forward at times. Is still our best natural DM

Apam : 5
  • I have seen better
