It's time Super Eagles returned to AFCON

Nigeria has finally reached the AFCON qualifiers. This has been the news that has made the sports industry in Nigeria very proud. The Nigerian team has shown tremendous progress in the recent past, and this recent success is just one instance in which the team has managed to pass the finish line.

The Nigerian team was able to beat the Seychelles 3-0 in an international friendly. They surprised everyone on September 8th. Ahmed Musa, who plays for Al Nassr FC based in Riyadh, scored the first goal in the first 15 minutes. It's what made many soccer betting fans jump for joy, as Nigeria got a big surprise on Seychelles. To be fair, the Nigerian team has been strong. While he could not pass the qualifying stage in the World Cup due to a bit of bad luck, it is no secret that they have an energetic team that likes to take on new challenges.

Consequently, in the same first half, Chidozie Awaziem's ​​second goal increased his account. He plays for FC Porto, Portugal.

Odion Ighalo sealed his victory with a converted penalty. Currently, he is managing his exchange with the Chinese Super League, with Chachung Yatai.

His next game will be against Libya in October. The Football Federation of Libya has confirmed that the first stage will take place on its own grounds. The second leg will be held in Algeria, although the place has not yet been confirmed.

The Football Federation of Nigeria has just announced that the next AFCON Cup qualifier will be held at the Ahmadu Bello Stadium. According to the NFF, the Ahmadu Bello Stadium is the best stadium for the Super Eagles to win against Libya.

The doubleheader will determine which team will qualify which team will progress from the group.

The Super Eagles are currently in third place with three points. They are behind Libya with five points and South Africa with four.

The team is determined to reach the final of the AFCON Cup. Oghenekaro Etebo, who is a midfielder for the City of Super Eagles and Stoke, has underlined the importance of winning.

The Super Eagles are considered one of the best soccer teams in Africa. It was one of the few teams that formed part of the FIFA World Cup in Russia that represents Africa. However, it is sad that Nigeria has not led the AFCON Cup since 2013. They are eager to qualify for Cameroon next year.

Former Nigeria international Bright Omakaro urged the team to make more efforts. This is especially in their next matches. He insisted that the team that was part of the FIFA World Cup should appear in the qualifying matches.

The only true proof will be between Libya and South Africa. In the second group match, Libya played against South Africa in a 0-0 draw. However, Libya beat the Seychelles with a 5-1 victory in the same group matches. The Nigerian team has a great task ahead of them.
