Nigeria’s Super Eagles failed to redeem their image in the ongoing 2026 World Cup qualifier as they forced Zimbabwe to a 1-1 draw in Rwanda.
The Nigerian side had earlier played out a 1-1 draw against Lesotho in the first game in Uyo.
It was Charles Musona who netted the opening goal in the 27th minute from a 30-yard freekick to beat Francis Uzoho.
Zimbabwe nullified all the efforts of the Nigerian team to equalize the goal as they ended the first stanza with a lead.
Kelechi Iheanacho was on hand to level up the game for Nigeria in the 67th minute off an assist from Moses Simon.
Southampton forward Joe Aribo has a last-minute effort to put Nigeria but fluff the chance to end the game in a draw.
Super Eagles with 2 points from 2 games will face South Africa in day and 4 of the qualifier.
