Super Eagles Nigeria on Saturday, October 13, riots against Libya began, hits their visitors 4-0 at 2019 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Uyo.
Odion Igalo scored a hattrick before Samuel Kalou equalized.
These are the five things we learned from the game.
1. Eagles, finally, Igalo's strengths
Despite the fact that so far in the career of the club was a regular scorer, Igalo could not ignite when the Super Eagles in his shirt had questions about his quality and the call of his national team.
But, in fact, the flaws of Igalo Super Orlov were a matter of style that does not suit him, and not of his quality.
He is not the best dribbler, and he did not bless at a tremendous pace to leave the defenders dead, but he has the chaos factor in an 18-yard box and the ability to time out behind defenders.
That's what happened against Libya, with Wilfred Ndidi and Alex Iwobi playing on the balls for which the Libyans were disturbed.
2. Uzoho need to go on his distribution
This is a new era for goalkeepers in world football, when they are judged not only for what they do with their own hands, but also with their feet.
From the game against Libya, however, it is obvious that the Super Eagles goalie Francis Usoho is not updated over time.
Against Livia, Uzokho’s distribution was scanty and did not look confident when the ball got to its feet.
3. Ivobi works like number 10
After 2018 FIFA World CupIn particular, the game in the game against Croatia, one of the most mysterious decisions of Rohr was Alec Iwobi, one of the best passers-by on the wings, not in the middle.
Nigerian critics and football fans screamed Ivobi in the middle and for their desire against Libya.
WITH John Mikel Obi Ivubi got the role of number 10 and succeeded in this. He registered one help with a brilliant pass in Igalo, which cut Libya’s defense into the second Super Eagles goal.
He also created many chances and a brilliant setting for Ahmed Musa whose cross led to the third Nigeria.
4. Samuel Kalu shows promise
In the absence of Victor Moses who left Super Needle after world Cup, Rohr brought Samuel Kalu who showed glimpses of his promise.
Although he is accused of trying too hard to resist Libya, Bordeaux showed enough to tell us that the future is without Moses.
Indeed, Falé’s performance against Libya reminded us of Moses when he first joined the Super Eagles and before he was strangled to play like a wing.
5. Shehu Abdullahi is the best defender of Super Eagles.
Just before getting hurt in the first half, Shehu Abdullahi was one of the Super Eagles players in the game. He had a good right channel, defended himself tightly and was also an insulting threat.
Not human rights trade, but the intelligence with which he plays makes him a very valuable member of Super Orlov.
