FIFA make Nigeria goof

Nigeria’s Golden Eaglets classed their way to a 2-1 win over Argentina on Friday afternoon in Bauchi, taking them to the top of the group, but it appears someone at FIFA did not get the memo.
The world football governing body's website after the game listed Argentina and Germany as the two qualified teams from the group, totally omitting Nigeria.
Argentina were correctly inputted in as group winners to meet the second placed team from group C. But Germany, who were yet to qualify at the time, were listed as the group winners to face the best loser from either of groups C, D or E in match no 44.
The error was corrected on Saturday morning.
