Some fans react to Rangers ace Joe Aribo’s display for his country last night

Glasgow Rangers midfielder Joe Aribo is currently away from Ibrox on international duty.

The Light Blues ace played the full 90 minutes for Nigeria last night in a dramatic Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Sierra Leone in Benin City.

Aribo was deployed in a midfield three alongside Stoke loanee Oghenekaro Etebo – currently at Galatasaray – and Everton attacker Alex Iwobi.

Nigeria were dominant in the first half and raced into an emphatic four-goal lead by the half-hour mark, Iwobi scoring a brace alongside goals from Victor Osimhen and Samuel Chukwueze.

However, the visitors rallied round to stage a remarkable comeback, Kwame Quee netting before the break to make it 4-1.

In the second half, an Alhaji Kamara brace, either side of a Mustapha Dumbu goal, ensured a share of the spoils for both sides.

Aribo’s display yielded mixed reviews, with some fans thinking he was great and others claiming he wasn’t as good, though a fair few noted he got tired at the end.

 

Press reviews, meanwhile, were critical – Allnigeriasoccer gave him 4 out of 10 and Goal.com rated him 5 out of 10.

Here is what some fans made of Aribo’s performance:
