An analysis on the performance of Bournemouth midfielder Nnamdi Ofoborh in his debut game for the Nigeria U20 team in their 1-2 loss to Egypt has been provided by Owngoalnigeria.com editorial team.
Ofoborh started for the Flying Eagles in the game, which was the second game of their two games friendly against Egypt as part of their preparations for the commencement of the qualifiers for the 2019 African Youth Championship.
He started out on the right with Nura Mohammed playing on the left in coach Paul Aigbogun 4-3-3 formation, and he showed glimpses of his potential for the duration he was on.
The slick left footed Ofoborh, who snubbed the chance to represent England impressed with his abilities on the ball, as well as his willingness to always be on the ball.
He made himself available for a pass, and his decision making when in possession caught the eyes on three occasions when he was put under pressure by the Egyptians.
Overall he had a decent game considering he only trained with them 24 hours before the game, and although Nigeria lost, it will still remain a memorable debut for Ofoborh who lasted 50 minutes before making way for Peter Eneji.
