NEWS: Iwobi’s Goal Sends Nigeria To World Cup

The match between Nigeria and Zambia was a crucial one and it lived up to its expectations, as Iwobi scored the goal needed to send the Super Eagles to the World Cup.

Zambia stood toe to toe with the Super Eagles at the Godswill Akpabio stadium in Uyo, threatening the goal on occasion.

Ikechukwu Ezenwa was up to the task at hand, keeping the Chipolopolo forwards at bay, however, a goal by the Zambians was ruled out for offside.

Nigeria threatened on occasion, but lacked that final bite in attack. The introduction of Iwobi proved to be a tactical decision for Gernot Rohr.

Iwobi changed the game as he was introduced, producing brilliance and it finally paid off as he buried a shot in the 73rd minute.

The goal proved to be the only one of the match, as the Super Eagles qualified for the 2018 Russia World Cup top of the group.
