Prime Business Africa presents the player ratings from the game.

 

Goalkeeper

Chiamaka Nnadozie

The goalkeeper had little to do in the game aside keeping away an effort from a free kick. 6/10.

 

Defenders

Michelle Alozie

The left back was not particularly inspiring much confidence defensively but was an outlet on the wing as the team piled pressure on their guests. 6/10.

 

Oluwatosin Demehin

There was a worrying end to an otherwise fine game for the former youth international as she pulled up with an injury.

Provided the assist for the first goal of the game. 7/10.

 

Akudo Ogonna

Ogonna had a much better game in Abuja than she did have in Addis Ababa.

The defender was not awed by the expectations and didn’t show nerves. 6.5/10.

 

Rofiat Imuran

The young defender was solid at the back and good going forward. Had a good understanding with Uchenna Kanu on the right channel. 6/10.

 

Midfielders

Peace Efih

Efih was the conduit between the midfield and the attack. Prgoresed well the ball and created so many chances for attacking teammates. 7.5/10.

 

Toni Payne

Was quiet for the period she was involved in the game. 4/10.

 

Rasheedat Ajibade

Continued her great form with two goals in Abuja, added to the vital away strike in Addis Ababa. 9/10

 

Forwards

Asisat Oshoala

Scored one and assisted another in the game a day after she finished in 20th place in the Ballon D’Or rankings. 7/10.

 

Uchenna Kanu

The winger scored a goal and also assisted another. Was a handful for the fullback with her pace and trickery. 8/10.

 

Ifeoma Onumonu

Yet to convince a lot of Nigerians that she can carry the goal scoring responsibiliites alone without some sort of assistance from teammates. 6/10.

The substitutes: The duo of Rinsola Babajide and Esther Onyenezide were late substitutes form the bench. Not rated.
