After a disappointing stalemate draw against Rwanda in the opening match, the Home-based Super Eagles bounced back with a narrow 1-0 victory over Libya on Friday evening. The win takes the to 4 points and top the table, one point ahead of Libya whose experience saw them beat Equitorial Guinea in the first match.
However, Equitorial Guinea have been eliminated from the competition following a successive defeat after going 1-0 down to Rwanda. The Super Eagles will be facing E. Guinea in their final group match and a draw would be enough to advance them to the next stage.
The Super Eagles team have registered their first win at the ongoing African Nations Championship, CHAN tournament taking place in Morocco. Sunday Faleye was the hero; scoring the all-important goal in the 79th minute as the Eagles secured maximum points. #Libya 0 – 1 #Nigeria pic.twitter.com/8dhdtDiteI
