Alex Iwobi goal sends Nigeria to World Cup as first African qualifiers

John Mikel Obi

The win put them on an unassailable 13 points at the top of Group B.

"I can say that the good communication and understanding among players, coaches and every member of the team is very strong and will give us victory over Zambia".

Nigeria managed to see out the closing stages of the second half with relative ease to claim victory that seals their spot in Russian Federation with one game to spare. They will play Algeria in a meaningless match in the last round next month.

The Super Eagles of Nigeria qualified for the 2018 World Cup after a 1-0 win over Zambia on Saturday, October 7, at the Godswill Akpabio stadium in Uyo.

"No matter how I rate the Zambians, it's too late for them to qualify for the World Cup".

Iraq forces push into IS bastion Hawija
The town became the main stronghold of the terror group in the region after the Iraqi army regained control of Mosul in July. Hawija has been an insurgent bastion since soon after the US-led invasion of 2003.

Seen by many as the toughest group of the continent's five qualifying tables, Nigeria have been dominant, remaining unbeaten throughout and only dropping points thanks to a Cameroonian penalty on the road in Yaounde.

"The game on Saturday will be like the games against Algeria and Cameroon in Uyo, which we won 3-1 and 4-0 respectively". So in 1994, 98 and 2014 the national team of Nigeria reached the stage of the 1/8 finals, which remains the best achievement to this day. As far as I'm concerned, we've collected the World Cup ticket and we are going to Russian Federation next year.

"The Eagles want to win again for Carl", Rohr said.
