October 7, 2017 – Nigeria Becomes First African Country To Qualify For 2018 World Cup In Russia As Eagles Trashes Chipolopolo In Uyo

Nigeria became the first African country to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia, after they beat Zambia 1-0 at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium in Uyo, the Akwa Ibom state capital.

The first half of the encounter ended goalless, with the Chipolopolo the better side, troubling the Super Eagles with their pace in attack.

However, in the second half, the game swung the hosts’ way, after Gernot Rohr introduced Arsenal’s Alex Iwobi for Simon Moses.

Iwobi finished off a fine move down the right, following nice combination play between Victor Moses and Shehu Abdullahi.

Nigeria now have 13 points at the top of Group and an unassailable six-point lead ahead of Zambia, with one round of games left.

They join other countries like Brazil, Spain, Mexico, England, Germany, Iran, South Korea, etc. who have also booked their places at next year’s tournament.

      • I think the boys are getting back to where they used to be. ..usual dream team 94 lol
        Super Eagles don’t trash, they only know how to win games sometimes

  1. Congratulations to our Eagles. E no easy a beg and losing before home crowd would have been crushing.

  2. Hahahaha @ Keep it real. U funny sha.
    I think the most important thing is the fact that we are now qualified for the next World Cup come 2018 in Russia wheather there was a trashing or not.

    Well done the Super Eagles of Nigeria. Keep flying higher than high in the forthcoming WC tournament.

    I take a stroll…

  3. This is just a slim goal 1-0. Trashing means you outscore your opponents by wide margin. One to nothing is no trashing. Anyway am happy the eagles won.
