The home-based Super Eagles team have qualified for the final of the 2018 African Nations Championship currently taking place in Morocco.
The Nigerian team booked their place in the final on Wednesday night after defeating Sudan 1-0 at Stade de Marrakech.
A lone goal from Gabriel Okechukwu in the first half was all the Super Eagles needed to land in the final.
Okechukwu also came close to bagging a brace in the 25th minute when his left-footed shot sailed inches wide of Akram’s left corner.
Substitute goalkeeper Dele Ajiboye, who came in for injured Ifeanyi Ezenwa, kept the home Super Eagles in the game after producing two brilliant saves in the 90th minute to ensure they are through to the final.
They would be meeting Morocco, who had earlier qualified for the final, after an impressive 3 – 1 victory over Libya.
