Super Eagles kick start on a Winning Note

The Super Eagles of Nigeria on Sunday began
their qualification quest for the 2018 FIFA
World Cup in Russia on a winning note.

The Eagles secured a 2-1 win over the
Chipolopolo of Zambia, to end the invincibility
of the team at the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium.
Wonderful strikes from the England based
duo of Alex Iwobi and Kelechi Iheanacho
were enough to give Nigeria all the three
points even though Zambia pulled one goal
back in the second half.

With the win, the first ever on Zambian soil,
Nigeria are early table toppers in Group B,
while the result of the Algeria Cameroon
game is being awaited later tonight.
Only the top teams in each group will get the
berth to represent Africa at the 2018 World
Cup in Russia.
