The U-23 Eagles defeated defending champions the Black Meteors of Ghana 2-0 in their opening Group B clash in the All Africa Games and qualified for the men's football event semi-finals here in Brazzaville.
The win, combined with Ghana's draw against Senegal three days ago, means Nigeria are through to the semi-finals as it is a three-team group.
After dominating for most of the game, the U-23s couldn't break down a resolute Ghana defence in the first half.
In the early parts of the second half, the U-23 Eagles continued their domination of the game but still could not find a breakthrough.
In the 55th minute, the U-23 Eagles domination finally paid off when Junior Ajayi scored off an assist from Etor Daniel.
And with three minutes remaining, Kingsley Sokari made the game safe for the U-23 Eagles after he lobbed the on rushing Ghana keeper to make it 2-0.
They will take on Senegal in their next group game on Saturday September 12th.With 1xBet you get High Odds, Fast Payouts, Wide Selection of Sports Events, Online Streaming and Huge Bonuses... sign up now.
