JOHNNY EDWARD rates how the players fared in the encounter Maduka Okoye: He failed to keep a clean sheet but it was no fault of his, conceding from the penalty spot in the 70th minute of the encounter. The 22-year-old was rarely tested but did make two brilliant saves. At the 45th minute, Taiwo Awoniyi’s header gave the Super Eagles their second goal. First he saved from Mohammed Mahammed in the 14th minute and another from Khedr Daiyeen. “With the previous coach, I played on his instructions, but the current coach gives the freedom and allows us to bring our style of play at our clubs. RATING: 5 Ola Aina: The Torino wing-back’s evening was marred by a rash tackle in the penalty box, with South African ref Victor Gomes awarding a penalty against the Eagles. Before the commencement of the second half, Alex Iwobi replaced Samuel Chukwueze, who scored Nigeria’s first goal. Aside that error, the former Fulham defender had a decent performance. The three-time winners of AFCON, 1980, 1994 and 2013, also doubled the lead through Germany-based Union of Berlin Striker, Taiwo Awoniyi, in the 45th minutes.

RATING: 5 Kenneth Omeruo: Posted another impressive performance alongside William Troost-Ekong and distributed the ball well. Sudan won the first match 4-0 in the 1963 group phase whilst Nigeria won the second 1-0 in 1976. As coach, Eguavoen was assistant to another former captain Christian Chukwu when Nigeria finished third at the 2004 finals in Tunisia, then led the team to win another bronze in Egypt two years later. He made a timely tackle to deny Daiyeen a chance on goal in the 78th minute. RATING: 6 William Troost-Ekong: Had a commanding display in defence and offered Aina more opportunities to join the attack from the right flank. Following a draw in their opening match against Guinea-Bissau (0-0), Sudan have managed just one win in their last 14 Africa Cup of Nations games (D6 L7), dating back to the 1972 edition. RATING: 6 Zaidu Sanusi : The FC Porto defender was solid in defence but he rarely joined the attack when needed. Copyright PUNCH. RATING: 5 Wilfred Ndidi: The Leicester City man marshalled the Eagles midfield perfectly but was guilty of some misplaced passes. The Super Eagles are looking to win their opening two matches to an Africa Cup of Nations in consecutive tournaments for the very first time.

His partnership with Joe Aribo is growing game by game. RATING: 6 Joe Aribo: Posted a lively performance for the Eagles again before he was replaced for Kelechi Nwakali in the 65th minute.. Contact:. His exit saw a collapse in the Eagles midfield. RATING 7 Kelechi Iheanacho: Had a quiet evening, failing to replicate his impressive form against Egypt in Tuesday’s opener. He had two players on him each time he had the ball and was hurled off for Ahmed Musa in the 65th minute.

RATING: 5 Samuel Chukwueze: Scored his first goal of the tournament after a miserable outing against Egypt. He did not influence the game from the right win and was replaced at half time for Alex Iwobi. RATING: 5 .
