Supersport rates Eagles v Antelopes



Nigeria's Super Eagles booked their passage into the last eight of the Africa Cup of Nations after dispatching the Walya Antelopes of Ethiopia with two late goals from the spot.

Supersport.com rates the players of the Super Eagles who took part in the game against Ethiopia in Rustenburg on Tuesday.

Vincent Enyeama: He had little to do in this game. But in the 81st minute, Enyeama's save off Saladin Said's point-blank header ensured Nigeria did not have to concede another late goal after going in front earlier. 7/10

Elderson Echiejile: Again it was not a 100 percent assured display from the Sporting Braga defender. He almost got among the goals but defensively Echiejile showed frail signs once more. 5/10

Efe Ambrose: In spite of playing at right-back rather than in the centre-back, he did well to create a balance defensively and going forward. 6/10

Godfrey Oboabona: The Sunshine Stars' man was caught out in aerial battles a few times. 4/10

Kenneth Omeruo: He was the most mobile in defence and at a point threw himself at Said's goal-bound shot. Omeruo almost got on the scoresheet at the other end when the goals were not coming for the Super Eagles. 6/10

John Mikel Obi: It was a top display from the midfielder. He failed to keep possession of the ball and at some point, misplaced his passes. 5/10

Fegor Ogude: The 25-year-old did a good job fending off the Ethiopians in the middle of the park and forced them to resort to long balls. 6.5/10

Emmanuel Emenike: In the previous two games, the Spartak Moscow man got the goals. But the third game was different, as he had to drift wide and had to face a physical Ethiopian defence that forced him to play wide and deep. 5/10

Victor Moses: Going forward, the Chelsea winger was Nigeria's best man. He won the two spot kicks and converted them to save his team the blushes of crashing out in the first round of the Afcon. 8/10

Ikechukwu Uche: In his first start in the tournament, the Villareal man looked off form. The 'Garri Master' lasted just over an hour on the pitch before he was replaced. 4/10

Sunday Mba: The Warri Wolves striker made his Afcon debut and settled in well in spite of being played behind the forwards. His goal attempt stung Sisay Bancha's palms and caused panic. 7/10

Subs:

Ahmed Musa: He played the last 24 minutes but added nothing to the squad as his runs off and on the ball were poor. 3/10

Brown Ideye: His big frame troubled Ethiopia at the back for the last 15 minutes he came on, and forced a save from Bancha from a point blank header. But Moses' late show dwarfed him out of the scene. 4/10

Joseph Yobo: The captain came on two minutes into added time. So he cannot be rated.
