Super Eagles and Ajax defender, Calvin Bassey, has been commended for his brilliant performance following Tuesday night’s UEFA Champions League match against Liverpool.
Although, the match ended 2-1 in favour of Liverpool but the player lived up to expectations on the field of play for his team.
His outstanding performance being helped Ajax to conceive less goal than expected.
Liverpool having lost 1-4 to Napoli last were to an extent performed well kudos to Egypt national team captain Mohamed Salah who opened the scoring chart for the Reds in the 17th minute.
Cameroon star Joel Matip scored the winning goal for Liverpool football club in the 89th minute after receiving an assist from Konstantinos Tsimikas to end the match 2-1.
Bassey despite all odds having recovered from an injury he had last week was arguably one of the best players on the pitch. He had 79 touches against Liverpool football club, he had 90% pass accuracy, he won 5 duels, he made two blocks and also won 5 tackles.
He was more or less the restraining force in the Ajax squad last night which prevented Liverpool from score more goals.
See below some of the commendations:
Calvin Bassey is far more better than him watching them both yesterday
