The Super Eagles played two games within the space of three days in the 2022 African Cup of Nations qualifiers with lots of positives.
It was all smiles as the Super Eagles picked up six points in games against Benin Republic and Lesotho.
Nigeria ensured qualification for the African showpiece under Gernot Rohr.
Here are nine Nigerian players who impressed at the international break..
9. Zaidu Sanusi
The Cristiano Ronaldo nemesis had a great game versus Benin Republic in Port. He had an average game on Tuesday but the FC Porto ace did enough to be listed.
8. Tyrone Ebuehi
It was good to see Ebuehi return to the Super Eagles starting XI against Lesotho. He was sweet to watch in the win over the Crocodiles.
7. Oghenekaro Etebo
Karo showed Rohr why he deserves to start ahead of Joe Aribo with a classy show as the Super Eagles feasted on Lesotho. He hardly put a foot wrong.
6. Wilfred Ndidi
The Super Eagles Midfield General brought his usual flavour to the team with his contributions. He was fought like a wounded Lion.
5. Anayo Iwuala
The few minutes that Anayo Iwuala got under his belt showed series of positives as he impressed with a combination of four accurate crosses. The winger completed five successful dribbles.
4. Henry Onyekuru
Galatasaray winger Henry Onyekuru showed why he deserves more playing time for the Super Eagles. He was denied by Benin Republic Allagbe and provided an assist against Lesotho.
3. Victor Osimhen
The Olusosun bred footballer came to the party in both games. He scored and provided an assist against Lesotho.
2. Leon Balogun
One reason why the Super Eagles were stable in the last two games was the solidity that Leon Balogun brought to the table. The Rangers man directed affairs for the Eagles.
1. Paul Onuachu
The KRC Genk star was initially named as a standby player but he stood tall with a last gasp winner against Benin Republic, and netted brilliant strike in the rout of Lesotho. He is the number one star of the international break.
