Nigeria Qualifys for the African Nations Cup Quarter Finals




Nigeria completed a 3-0 rout of luckless Mozambique with 2 goals from striker Osaze Odemwingie and a late strike from Obafemi Martins at theTundavala Stadium in Lubango Angola.

The 'Super Eagles'. Nigeria had enjoyed the majority of possession and took the lead moments before the interval when Odemwingie found space inside the penalty area.The Lokomotiv Moscow midfielder was able to take full advantage and rifled a low near-post shot past Mozambique goalkeeper Joao Rafael and into the net.

Shuaibu Amodu's side doubled their lead two minutes after the break when the unmarked Odemwingie was able to control a cross from Yakubu Aiyegbeni and tap the ball home from close range. Everton striker Yakubu was substituted and replaced by Martins who got his name on the scoresheet five minutes from time.

John Obi Mikel punished some sloppy Mozambique defending but lashed a shot straight at Rafael who parried the ball into Martins and he confidently stroked the ball home.
