Significant lessons as Nigeria secure a narrow 0-1 win against Guinea-Bissau
Nigeria would be pleased at least for many reasons as the Super Eagles managed a 0-1 away win in Guinea-Bissau on Monday.
A solitary strike from Nantes forward Moses Simon secured the win for Jose Peseiro’s side on the road.
As Nigeria returned to winning ways following the 0-1 loss they had to the same opponent last week in Abuja.
Following Nigeria’s win over Guinea-Bissau, Isagoal.com evaluates the significant lessons we’ve learnt from this Matchday 4 encounter.
Maximum three points attainedBeating Guinea-Bissau secured a maximum of three points for Nigeria on Monday.
And that’s the same way Guinea-Bissau shocked Nigeria on Friday to pick the points at stake at the expense of the Super Eagles.
That’s the major positive to take from the match as the Eagles reclaimed the top spot in Group A with 9 points from a possible 12 points haul.
Nigeria Needs CreativityThe midfield issue has continued to haunt Nigeria down the lane as it contributed to Nigeria’s woes in the home and away clash with Guinea-Bissau.
Even with the attacking talent on display, the Super Eagles are still struggling to break down the opposition’s defence.
The flair factor is still lacking in the Super Eagles midfield and Jose Peseiro must find a creative spark who can link the midfield to the attack to the benefit of his team as a whole.
Player Performance Index
Villarreal forward Samuel Chukwueze was largely wasteful in front of goal in both legs against Guinea-Bissau.
He could have been the player to sit out on the bench in the stead of other quality players in the side like Joe Aribo, Kelechi Iheanacho and Ademola Lookman, prior to the return leg.While Bright Osayi-Samuel may have given Jose Peseiro food for thought on the positive following his amazing outing in both games for Nigeria.
His mazy run into the box won Nigeria the penalty for the only goal of the game as he was brought down by the Guinea-Bissau defender.
