CHAN 2018! Wasteful Super Eagles Pay The Price in their Opening Match
The home-based Super Eagles failed to claim a win as they were held 0-0 by Rwanda in their opening match of the 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN) on Monday
Nigeria and Rwanda settled for a barren draw in their Group C opener at the Stade Ibn Batouta in Tangiers, Morocco. The stalemate leaves the Super Eagles in joint second position in the group, two points behind Libya who beat Equatorial Guinea 3-0 earlier on Monday.
Libya maintains top spot of the group thanks to their 3-0 humbling of Equatorial Guinea in the earlier kick-off. The home-based Eagles were the better side, despite dominating possession in both halves but, they failed to do the most important thing – goal scoring.
