Nigeria's Super Eagles only managed two points in their doubleheader Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Sierra Leone.

Coach Gernot Rohr's men maintain their leadership on the Group L table with eight points despite faltering for the second straight time against the Leone Stars.

They were forced to a goalless draw in Freetown, a few days after John Keister's men forced them to a stalemate at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium.

5 reasons why Nigeria must beat Sierra Leone in Freetown

Although the three-time AFCON kings could blame the poor pitch and a few other factors for their poor performances, they still could not give a good account of themselves in the game.

Victor Osimhen's injury could have disrupted Rohr's plan as the German boss fielded had to make do with the attackers in his team.

However, below are the four players who failed to impress almost all through the encounter in Freetown:

Ahmed Musa:

The former Leicester City attacker has not been really productive for the national team in the last few games he played.

Despite his experience in the Premier League and other European leagues, the 27-year-old failed to inspire his teammates to meaningful a outing away from home.

Kelechi Iheamacho:

The forward probably had the best opportunity to hand Nigeria a victory but he failed to find the back of the net on two different occasions.

He also had a penalty call but the referee chose to ignore the plea having been brought down in the danger zone.

Joe Aribo:

The midfielder failed to show up in both games against the Leon Stars despite putting up an impressive display in his last club game before the FIFA break.

Ola Aina:

The Fulham defender made Gernot Rohr's starting lineup in Freetown ahead of Zaidu Sanusi but his inclusion in the squad made little or no difference.

Legit.ng earlier reported that it was yet another night of disappointment as Gernot Rohr's men fail to fly at the Siaka Stevens Stadium in Freetown as hosts Sierra Leone were unlucky to win the game after it ended 0-0.

However, after another 90 minutes of play, none of these two sides could claim three points - and here are five things we learnt during the second leg of the fixture.
