Nigeria men’s football team secured their place at world cup finals with a 1 – 0 victory over Zambia in Uyo, with Alex Iwobi’s strike. Iwobi proved himself a super substitute for Nigeria on Saturday when he scored the decisive goal needed to take the African football giant to the Russian World Cup. Iwobi came in the 67th minute and seven minutes after, he utilized a cross by Victor Moses to score for Nigeria’s Super Eagles.
Nigeria now have 13 points in Group B, followed by Zambia with 7 points. Cameroon have six points.
Nigeria’s final match in November against Algeria will now be a mere formality as Iwobi’s goal has booked a place for the Super Eagles next year in Russia.
