The Super Eagles of Nigeria on Saturday qualified for the 2018 World Cup holding in Russia after defeating Zambia 1-0 at a qualifier in Akwa Ibom. Substitute Alex Iwobi got Nigeria’s goal in the 71st minute. The Eagles had several chances at goal but their profligacy meant they scored just a goal in front of their home fans. Table-topping Nigeria now have 13 points while Zambia has seven points, making the last game a formality.
