Lugano taps home Forlan's low cross, leaving the Nigeria 'keeper stranded and exposing the inexperience of the young Nigerian defence.
Vincent Enyeama, goalkeeper: 5
Other than the two goals, for which he can't take much blame, and one or two fairly routine saves, he didn't have much to do. However, his tendency to concede regularly is becoming an issue, and he needs to look more commanding around the box.
Efe Ambrose, right-back: 4
He initially looked slightly nervous when defending but got forward well enough. The second half saw a drop in performance, though. Ambrose was culpable for Forlan's winning goal, when the Nigeria right-back was 30 yards up the pitch. By the end, he didn't know whether to go forward or stay back.
Godfrey Oboabona, centre-back: 5
He was fairly average. He dealt relatively well with the Uruguay front three, who were luckily not on song, but he was not imposing enough. His inexperience was evident during the first goal.
Kenneth Omeruo, centre-back: 7
He could have done with more solidity from his defensive partner, but he was good overall. He got at the Uruguay attackers, making important tackles and interceptions, including an excellent 94th-minute challenge on Edinson Cavani, who would have been through on goal.
Uwa Elderson Echiejile, left-back: 5
Like Ambrose, he had plenty of energy to get forward on the overlap but not enough when covering at the back. He couldn't force his way down the right for much of the game but did play a cutting pass to Brown Ideye through the midfield in the buildup to Nigeria's goal.
