BREAKING NEWS!!! Nigeria qualify for 2019 AFCON

The Super Eagles of Nigeria have qualified for next year’s African Cup of Nations (AFCON) finals following their 1-1 draw against South Africa on Saturday afternoon.

The Eagles earned the ticket with one match to spare.

The Eagles went ahead in the 9th minute but the hosts rallied back before the interval to level proceedings.

The two sides could not get the winning goal in the second half, though Nigeria had their goal controversially ruled out after the scorer was adjudged to be in an off side position.

Nigeria remain top of Group E with 10 points while South Africa stay second with 9 points.

The Eagles will take on Seychelles in the final match of the qualifiers.
