The Super Eagles of Nigeria has qualified for the 2018 World Cup holding in Russia by defeating Zambia 1-0 at a qualifier.

The game held at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, Uyo, where substitute Alex Iwobi got Nigeria’s goal in the 71st minute.

Nigeria and Zambia had several chances at goal but their profligacy kept the game goalless until the Arsenal youngster was introduced late in the second half

With 13 points in the kitty for Nigeria, the remaining games in the group will be mere formalities as only one team will qualify from the five groups.
