Nigeria will return to the African Cup of Nations in 2013 in style. After playing a 2-2 draw in Liberia, the Super Eagles triumphed in Calabar.
The Chelsea duo of Mikel Obi and Victor Moses were among the goals scorers on the day the Super Eagles went on rampage and decided to teach some football lessons to their opponents.
Congratulations to the Super Eagles of Nigeria. I hope you will do well at the Nations Cup.
Meanwhile Senegal crashed out and disgracefully too. Ivory Coast were 2 goals up when the Senegalese fans disrupted the game. The players were protected by the police and the game was abandoned. Some people were injured by objects thrown around the pitch.
I hope CAF will come down heavily on the Senegalese. A 4-5 year ban wouldn’t be a bad idea.
Football is part of sports. A game of football is not a war.
