•Francis Uzoho — Confident. Lucky not to concede a penalty after charging off his goal line to stop a Congolese player. 7/10

•Tyronne Ebuehi — Energetic. Exuded confidence. Lost possession in the Nigeria penalty area, presenting Benik Afobe with a chance. 6.5/10

•William Troost-Ekong — Nice game. Capped it with a goal — his first in a Super Eagles shirt. 7/10

•Leon Balogun — Not his usual self. 5/10

•Elderson Echiejile — Careless at times. 5/10

•Ogenyi Onazi — Committed too many fouls. 4/10

•Ogenekharo Etebo — Did little going forward. 5/10

•Joel Obi — Another poor showing from the Torino man. 4/10

•Kelechi Iheanacho — Had very little impact. Substituted just before the restart. 4/10

•Junior Lokosa — Showed flashes of brilliance. With the midfield struggling to do their job, he had to play deep at times. 5/10

•Simeon Nwankwo — Hit the post in the first half. Forced the Congolese goalkeeper into a smart save with a header. May have earned a place in Nigeria’s squad to Russia. 6.5/10


•Shehu Abdullahi — replaced Ebuehi after the new Benfica signing was forced off by injury. 4/10

•Alex Iwobi — Brought energy to the team. 6/10

•Kenneth Omeruo — Showed composure and experience. 5/10

•Ola Aina — His lack of pace was exposed. Gave away a penalty. Poor performance. 3/10

•Ahmed Musa — Caused Congo problems with his pace. 6/10
