Africans abroad: Iwobi, Aubameyang, Partey & Koulibaly rated

14 Jan 2019, 13:25

Futaa’s weekly African players in Europe review, including the likes of Alex Iwobi, Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang, Thomas Partey and Kalidou Koulibaly.

England

Two African footballers were amongst the goals in the English Premier League, and unsurprisingly, Mohamed Salah of Egypt and Liverpool found the winner for the Reds in an away game at Brighton Albion.

Nigeria and Leicester City’s Wilfred Ndidi found the Foxes' consolation goal in the 1-2 home loss to Southampton.

Arsenal duo

Nigeria’s Iwobi and Gabon’s Aubameyang could not inspire the Gunners when the club needed it the most, as Arsenal lost 1-0 to West Ham United. The duo received contrasting ratings from Pain in the Arsenal:

Iwobi 7/10: “Man of the Match. In a day where the attack faltered, Iwobi didn’t. He looked energetic throughout, really asserted himself on the match and was the primary creator, which isn’t saying much, because the chances were incredibly lacking. Still, he had a good match in his own right, and missed a goal by mere inches. Another positive one” wrote the fan blog.

Aubameyang 4.7/10: “I was about to lose my mind watching him. Felt like every time he took a second touch, he turned over possession, whether he tried passing or dribbling. Had nothing to offer this match. And that’s all I’ll say because he’s still going to win the Golden Boot,” said Pain in the Arsenal.

Spain

Spain's highly reputable publication Marca, felt that the Black Stars midfielder delivered a lot less than he is capable of.

“It was not the best game for the Ghanaian as he shot from distance and did not affect play too much,” said Marca.

Italy

Senegalese star central defender Koulibaly was rated as the Man of the Match by Italian Football Daily, describing the Manchester United target as ‘World Class.’

“Kalidou Koulibaly (8 MOTM): It says a lot about a team when their center back is their man of the match every single game. That is exactly where Napoli are at right now. Koulibaly has been nothing short of world class and is easily Napoli’s best player.”
