Chelsea have celebrated with their Nigerian duo of John Mikel Obi and Victor Moses, following Super Eagles 1-0 win against Tanzania in Saturday's 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in Uyo, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
Manchester City youngster, Kelechi Iheanacho, scored the only goal of the game, netting a superb strike with 12 minutes left.
The win lifted the Eagles to second position, on five points behind group G winners Egypt.
A statement released on Chelsea's official website reads: "The Super Eagles knew they could not qualify for January’s Africa Cup of Nations after a disappointing campaign, but they did at least finish with victory against the east Africans courtesy of a brilliant Kelechi Iheanacho strike 12 minutes from time.
"Mikel, the captain, was withdrawn shortly before then having been heavily involved in their bronze-medal-winning Olympic run last month.
"Moses played 81 minutes having put a couple of good chances over. Nigeria’s attention now turns to their World Cup qualifier in Zambia next month."With 1xBet you get High Odds, Fast Payouts, Wide Selection of Sports Events, Online Streaming and Huge Bonuses... sign up now.
