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

  1. Coach Shaibu Amodu's no complains , made  3 subs that paid off
  2. Ike Uche did not lose a step ,scoring an early goal within minutes after tip off
  3. Obinna Nsofor breaks his 3 game skid , with a solid performance
  4. Michael Eneramo made no impact at all
  5. Coach Shaibu needs to get an offensive midfielder ASAP
  6. king Kanu   "The Super Sub" changed the game in the second half
  7. Super Eagles Defense was shaky all game
  8. Key players did not play-Taye Taiwo- Chidi Odiah-John Mikel Obi-Yobo
  9. Kalu Uche needs to get more involved on offense
  10. The Harambee Stars missed out on 2 key attempts to score

Players Rating

Vincent Enyeama : 6.5
  • Kept a clean sheet but was not at his best
  • Got dribbled, but the striker did not pull the trigger.
  • Used his experience to guide the defence, pushed the Kenyan attacker wide and save a possible goal
Mohammed: 6
  • Good defender but did not offer as much an attacking options like Odiah or Olubayo Adefemi
  • I have seen better from YM

Adeleye : 6
  • Quality defender but he needs a quality partner in Yobo
  • Was pulled out of position a few times but he passsed the ball out of defence very well

Sodje : 4.5
  • Did not have a great day in the office
  • Made a few good stops and also almost gifted the Kenyans a goal
  • For the Tunisia match i would pefer Yobo starting

Echiejilie : 5.5
  • Got skinned alive by Oliech & his team-mates at least twice
  • Put in the cross that led to Nigeria's 3rd goal

Olofinjana: 5

  • Got disspossed and lost a few balls. The quality of his passing can be improved

Kalu Uche : 5
  • Dwells too long on the ball and gave far too many bad passes. Made one very good ball recovery
  • showed some skills but no end results
  • Kalu o gini man - you have to step your game up

Osaze : 6.5
  • Tremendous work rate. 
  • Was knocked down in the 18 box that led to Nigeria's second goal via PK
  • Had a couple good cracks at goal that he could have done better with
  • Also he did not help out in defence like he did against France

Kanu : All Hail The King 8.5
  • MOTM. Did more in 45mins than our midfielders (combined) did in 90mins. Used his experience to move into open spaces in Kenya's midfield from where he drove the team forward. Was instrumental in our last 2 goals and a must (as a super sub) in Tunis.
  • Managed to hold on to the ball and stabilise the SE midfield

Ike Uche : 8.5  - Yes 2drama be Ike Uche shrinner and also basher .
  • Garri Master  na you biko
  • Continued from where he left off against France and was a real thorn in the sides of the Kenyans. He scored an opportunistic goal and was not afraid of shooting from distance
  • He needs to look for options before blasting at goal from 18yds out.

Nsofor : 7.5  -
  • Came on and scored 2 goals and could have had a hat-trick

Enemaro : 4.5  -
  • The jury is still out on this player as to whether he can cut it at this level. Seems to be skillful as he skinned his marker a few times. He could not free himself for an open pass
  • Will suffer due to Super Eagles poor midfield support

Etuhu : 4.5
  • Almost collapsed at Half-Time due to the weather
  • He put in a few robust tackles and made simple passes, but he did not seem to understand his role in the team

Apam :
  • Not enough time to rate him
