President Buhari Congratulates Super Eagles On AFCON Qualification

President Buhari Congratulates Super Eagles On AFCON Qualification

The Super Eagles opened the scoring inside 10 minutes of play before the host drew level just before the half time break.

An own-goal from Bafana defender Buhle Mkhwanaza and an equaliser from Lebo Mothiba ensured both sides shared the points, which was enough for Nigeria to seal qualification for Cameroon 2019.

Speaking after the match, Rohr heaped praise on Brighton and Hove Albion player - now on loan at Union St Gilloise in Belgium's second division - as well as few of his Bafana teammates.

Pinnick said this at the Asaba International Airport, where Delta's Gov. Ifeanyi Okowa received the Super Eagles on arrival from their 2019 AFCON Qualifier in Johannesburg against South Africa.

Formula 3: Sophia Floersch hospitalised after horror crash at Macau Grand Prix
Floersch, 17, was sent hurtling into the barriers lining the edge of the race track when her vehicle vaulted over another auto . The ravaged race auto landed on the fencing, but it wasn't clear whether someone was directly hit based on the video above.


"Two goals for us were not given, but I don't criticise the referee".

But that draw horror against Seychelles, who have been thrashed in every other game, including 8-1 by Libya on Saturday, may still come back to haunt Bafana - despite remaining unbeaten and in second place in Group E with a match to go.

"Some of our players, especially the captain, is too quick for the linesman".

The result, fighting back from a goal down, might have boosted Bafana's morale following their insipid 0-0 away draw against Seychelles last month. I'm happy for this young team because our four regular players were not here.

Netherlands stun France in 2-0 win
The Netherlands have failed to qualify for the last two major global tournaments, but have enjoyed a resurgence under Koeman. A draw on Monday will be enough for them to finish top of the group due to their superior goal difference.


"We know that we have only beaten them once and they have beaten us five times, it's going to be a tough encounter but we are very positive that we can beat them again tomorrow".

The hosts nearly evened the score in the 18th minute, but Mothiba could not get to the end of Tau's cross.

"There is no greater game to go out there with friends and family and enjoy' but at the moment the numbers are not looking good. We are playing against one of the best teams on the continent and our biggest rivals".

The central defensive trio will be John Ogu, Leon Balogun and William Troost-Ekong while Oghenekaro Etebo will feature at the heart of the midfield in an apparent attempt to give a good showing in the match.

I'm not going because I'm scared but it is at the request of Kerala police citing security threats. They also mentioned that the safety of others at the airport also had to be considered.
