Players Rating

Vincent Enyeama : 9.0
  • He made some great saves to keep Nigeria in the game.

Taye Tawio: 5.0

  • Made some nice throws that gave the Argentinan defense problems.
  • Needs to improve on his free kicks
  • Picked up an injury

Odiah : 4.5
  • Needs to cut down on the ball skills and make the basic pass.
  • Offered little going forward.

Yobo : 5.0
  • Too much ball watching by the team captain.
  • Poor communication with other defenders giving Argentines too much space in the box.

Shittu : 4.5
  • Argentina’s style of play demanded greater awareness from the centre-back which Shittu lacked.

Kaita 4.5

  • Has no business been granted a spot on the national squad.
  • Showed poor marking skills which needs improvement.
  • Needs to improve both his decision-making and shooting.

Etuhu : 4.0

  • Has no business been granted a spot on the national squad.
  • Provided no creativity offensively.
  • Poor passing and could not stabilize the midfield.

Lukman : 4.5
  • Not ready for super Eagles prime time, but shows great promise for the future. 
  • His inexperience showed and his inability to create in the middle.
  • Should not be starting  for a young player in his first World Cup.

Obasi : 5.5
  • Attacked Gutierrez with some success early on, but his effectiveness died out as the game wore on and he was replaced on the hour mark.
  • Needs to improve on his finishing

Yakubu: 5.0
  • Did not link up well with either Nsofor/Obasi or Osaze/Martins.
  • Was a passenger all game long.

Nsofor : 4.5
  • Poor performance
  • I have seen better


Martins : 6 -
  • Came on for Obinna and provided a new urgency in attack.
  • Didn’t have lot of chances.

Odemwingie : 5.5
  • Panicked on the ball a couple of times.
  • Provided Nigeria new life with his pace.
  • Odemwingie finds himself in possession in the box, but a woeful attempt at control sends the ball flying out for a goal-kick. Another opportunity goes begging with Martins being open for a shot.

Uche : 5.5
  • Flashes of creativity was a welcome infusion into a bumbling unsure Nigerian side. Should replace Haruna in the attacking midfield.

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

  1. Nigeria have to use set-pieces much better.
  2. Argentina look very dangerous going forward, but also look very dangerous at the back, Nigeria could not capitalise on this oppurnity.
  3. Good hunting at South Africa 2010 World Cup
  4. Go Super Eagles of Nigeria
