Nigeria have secured their place in the continental competition with a game to spare after being held to a 1-1 draw by South Africa in Saturday’s penultimate qualifying game.

Buhle Mkhwanazi’s own goal put the Super Eagles ahead in the 10th minute before Lebo Mothiba’s equaliser six minutes later.

Despite two questionable offside calls costing Gernot Rohr’s men two goals, they remain at the summit of Group E with 10 points from five matches and will return to the Afcon stage for the first time since 2013.

Atiku congratulated the Super Eagles for qualifying, he wrote;

Congratulations @NGSuperEagles on qualifying for the 2019 #AFCON. We will be here to cheer you to victory in the coming tournament.

  1. My problem with this our Nigeria players is that, if the score just one goal the feel reluctant, knowing that the match has not yet ended. Men the super Eagles of Nigeria need to wake up.
