The Super Eagles of Nigeria have booked a play-off spot after playing out a 1-1 draw with Cape Verde at the Teslim Balogun Stadium on Tuesday.

Although uninspiring, the result was enough to send the team on their way to the final round of qualifiers for the global showpiece event.

A Victor Osimhen’s first minute opener was quickly cancelled in the sixth minute and the remaining 84 minutes was a nerve-wrecking encounter.

Nigeria needed just a draw while Cape Verde had to win outrightly for a chance to qualify to their first World Cup.
