Nigeria keep their Afcon 2015 hopes alive

Posted: 15 October 2014 Time: 19:59

Nigeria kept their 2015 Africa Cup of Nations hopes alive with a hard-fought 3-1 qualifying win against Sudan on Wednesday night.

The Super Eagles, the defending champions, had been without a win so far and suffered a shock 1-0 defat to the same opponents over the weekend, but there was to be no repeat.

After a goalless first half in which the visitors threatened, Nigeria took the lead on 48 minutes through Ahmed Musa after John Obi Mikel had played him in.

However, the Sudanese were level soon after when a quick free-kick allowed Salah Ibrahim to sneak in and equalise.

Nigeria restored the lead in fortuitous circumstances just past the hour-mark when Emmanuel Emenike’s cross was spilled, allowing Aaron Samuel to slot home.

And the Eagles made sure of the points in the dying minutes, with Musa dispossessing a defender on the edge of the area, beating one defender and then firing home. 

The result puts Nigeria on four points, with Sudan one behind and bringing up the rear.

hdsethoba1 Drug dealers? Nice one...some of my closest friends are South Africans and I have never viewed them as serial rapists, uncontrollable pedophiles and HIV infested people; I just see and treat them as humans. You are obviously deranged and schizophrenic. Yes, some Nigerians (particularly those in S.A.) have soiled our name to unimaginable levels, but to generalise the actions of a few people as the reflection of all is the height of madness. The problem with most South Africans is that they do not see beyond their midget huts...try and pay a visit to Zimbabwe and a few countries and you'll realise that the world is much bigger than your small mind currently sees it. Silly!
