CHAN 2018: Super Eagles Start On Shaky Note
The home-based Super Eagles team Monday night got their campaign in the 2018 African Nations Championship, CHAN tournament off to a shaky start as they settled for a barren draw with their less-fancied group opponent, Rwanda.
The Super Eagles no doubt were the better side, dominating possession in both halves but failed to do the most important thing – goal scoring.
The Nigeria team were quite unlucky also as they hit the woodwork on three occasions while the Rwanda goalkeeper was also outstanding; making some daring saves.
After the duo Sunday Faleye and Rabiu Alli had seen their effort hit the woodwork.
On 78 minutes, the upright was to the rescue of Amavubi for the third time.
Substitute Ibrahim Mustapha’s header from an Ali corner hit the post to the relief of Rwanda, who held on to snatch a point of favourites Nigeria.
Nigeria next face Libya on Thursday whilst Rwanda battles Equatorial Guinea.
