The Super Eagles of Nigeria have booked a World Cup play-off spot after playing out a 1-1 draw with Cape Verde at the Teslim Balogun Stadium on Tuesday.
Although uninspiring, the result was enough to send the team on their way to the final round of qualifiers for the global showpiece event.
A Victor Osimhen’s first minute opener was quickly cancelled in the sixth minute and the remaining 84 minutes was a nerve-wrecking encounter.
Nigeria needed just a draw while Cape Verde had to win outrightly for a chance to qualify to their first World Cup.
Gernot Rohr’s men will now slug it out with other football heavyweights on the continent for one of the five slots given to Africa in the play-offs set for March 2022.
