Super Eagles Qualify for Brazil 2014
The African champions defeated the Walya Antelopes of Ethiopia 2-0 at the U.J Esuene Stadium in Calabar.
Victor Moses and substitute Victor Obinna Nsofor were the heroes for Nigeria.
Moses converted a 20th minute penalty to put Super Eagles, who had earlier defeated the Ethiopians 2-1 in Adiss Ababa, ahead on 3-1 aggregate.
Nsofor, who plays for Lokomotiv Moscow in the Russian Premier League, stunned the East Africans when he fired home a superb free- kick in the 82nd minute to send the packed U.J Esuene Stadium into celebration.
Nigeria thus qualified for next year’s global soccer fiesta on 4-1 aggregate.
