2013 African Nations Cup: Nigeria book ticket to Afcon finals
It’s all over in Nigeria – and Liberia will certainly be grateful to hear the final whistle. A brilliant attacking display has booked Nigeria’s place in South Africa, and on this form they might just have a chance at being crowned champions.
Nigeria’s five-goal margin is restored by Victor Moses who heads in from Mikel’s cross to grab his second of the game.
Patrick Wleh shows determination in the penalty box to get to the ball first and he toes it past Enyeama into the net.
It’s a rout. Ike Uche gets on the score sheet as Nigeria show neighbours Liberia no mercy. Uche’s shot crashes in off the post – as if confirmation was needed that Liveria’s luck is not in today!
GOAL – Nigeria 3-0 Liberia
Victor Moses puts Nigeria within touching distance of next year’s tournament in South Africa. The Chelsea winger converts Nosa Igiebor’s cross to score his first goal for his country.
GOAL – Nigeria 2-0 Liberia
Ahmed Musa doubles his side’s lead as he latches on to Emmanuel Emenike’s ball into the box and slots home. The Super Eagles are now in a strong position, with two away goals in the bag from the first leg. But one strike from Liberia would change the complexion of things.
And to bring you bang up to date, the matches between Equatorial Guinea and DR Congo, and Nigeria and Liberia are now under way.
