Nigeria vs Ukraine: It was like watching Brazil play

16th Sept, 2019 | By Ukrainian journalist | ||

Many people who who watched the Super Eagles against Ukraine game last week were left surprised the way the Nigerian team took the game to the hosts in the opening 45 minutes which ended with Nigeria leading 2-0.

Leading football news site, Owngoalnigeria.com, which did a report on the match, notes that the game ended in a 2-2 draw with Ukraine scoring twice in the second half, but according to Ukrainian journalist Stanislav Roman, the first half performance of the Super Eagles is similar to watching Brazil in full flow.

According to the site, Roman said the way the Nigerians were confident on the ball and also the running off it left the backline of Ukraine confused and even coach of the team Andriy Shevchenko admitted after the game that his wards could not keep up with the pace of the Nigerians.

He said the trio of Samuel Chukwueze, Samuel Kalu and Victor Osimhen can wreck any team in the world if they play at such break-neck speed as seen in the first half. " It was like watching Brazil play, to be honest. That was the best 45 minutes any team can ever wish for. They were not just good on the ball but off it. They kept making runs that left the defence of Ukraine confused.

The front three can trouble any team in this world with the pace with which they played the first 45 minutes ", Roman told Owngoalnigeria.com. The newsman added:" They probably got tired in the second half but if not for the chances they failed to convert, they would have rounded off the game before the first goal scored by Ukraine. Ukraine national team were taught a very good lesson by the Nigerians. "
