Nigeria v Congo: AFCON 2015 qualifier – as it happened

Nigeria beat Congo: Reaction

Nigeria needed the 2 goal win and we got it, thanks to the return of Coach Stephen Keshi, Strikers Ikechukwu Uche and Aaron Samuel both scored.

Just when you think its all over for Nigeria. They spring a surprise. Congratulations fellow Nigerians. The African champions came into the match needing to win by two clear goals to gain head-to-head advantage over the Congolese, as they had lost 3-2 to the East Africans in the first leg.

The win puts the Super Eagles of Nigeria second in the group and play South Africa next week who have already qualified for the African Cup of Nations 2015.

South Africa top Group A with 11 points from five matches, meaning they will now not be under pressure when they visit Nigeria on Wednesday.

Nigeria play host to South Africa in Uyo on Wednesday and must win to ensure automatic qualification regardless of Congo’s result in Sudan
