Super Eagles1 300x150 1
Nigeria became the first African country to secure qualification for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, displaying composure in the return match of the 2014 World Cup play-offs against Ethiopia and securing a 2-0 victory.

While the early moments favored Nigeria, with Emmanuel Emenike having two near misses, Ethiopia showed resilience and posed some threats to goalkeeper Enyeama. However, the turning point came in the 20th minute when referee Papa Gassama awarded a penalty to Victor Moses for a handball in the area, which the Liverpool striker calmly converted.

Ethiopia demonstrated worthy opposition, but the opening goal subdued the match’s intensity, leading to impatience among the spectators until halftime. In the second half, the Walyas Antelopes emerged as the more aggressive side, with Said twice falling in the area without the referee taking any action. Surprisingly, Nigeria, under the management of Keshi, did not capitalize on their lead and refrained from attacking. Numerous substitutions were made on both sides in an attempt to alter the course of the game.

One such substitution proved pivotal as Obinna Nsofor, who had just entered the field, capitalized on a well-placed free-kick to extend Nigeria’s lead. His powerful strike deceived Blancha, securing the 2-0 victory. Under a downpour towards the end of the match, the Super Eagles confirmed their place in Brazil for the upcoming World Cup.
