Nigeria Coast To Brazil At The Expense Of Ethiopia
Congratulations to the Super Eagles of Nigeria as they become the first African country to qualify for next year's World Cup finals in Brazil, following a 2-0 home win over Ethiopia in Calabar this evening.
Victor Moses converted a 20th-minute penalty and Victor Obinna added an 82nd-minute free kick for the second-leg success and a 4-1 aggregate win in the two-legged tie after Nigeria also won in Addis Ababa in last month's first leg.
Nigeria have now qualified for a fifth World Cup finals appearance, having played in four of the last five tournaments.
