Africa Nnamdi Ofoborh : Nigerian Midfielder Praised For Competitive Debut

Nnamdi Ofoborh made a competitive debut against Crystal Palace in the second round of the Carabao Cup on Tuesday. Shaun Cooper, Bournemouth U21 coach has praised Flying Eagles midfielder for his performance.

Predominantly a central midfielder, the former Tottenham Hotspur youth-teamer caught the eye playing as a central defender. It was during the win on penalties against the Eagles, preventing Chelsea loanee Michy Batshuayi, Jeffrey Schlupp and Ebere Eze from finding the net.

I thought they both did really well. Nnamdi had a fantastic season with Wycombe last year, experiencing first-team football and winning a promotion.” Cooper said to Bournemouth’s official website as he appreciated the performance of Ofoborh.

He was probably a bit more ready for it in that respect. But I still thought he did really well playing on the right of a back three. His passing in the first half was good. And as a character, he is solid and reliable.” He concluded.

Ofoborh capped off a fine performance by scoring Bournemouth’s ninth kick in the shootout.
