hi-res-160040151_crop_exactNigeria qualified for the next round of the Africa Cup of Nations after two late Victor Moses penalties gave them a crucial win against Ethiopia.

Moses, 22, opened the scoring from the spot after he was fouled by defender Alula Girma with 10 minutes to go.

The winger earned the second penalty when he was brought down by goalkeeper Sasay Bancha, who was sent off.

If Moses had not scored they would have lost a quarter-final spot to Zambia due to a worse disciplinary record.
