Zambia 1-1 Nigeria
Zambia will be the happier side after rescuing a point, but for both teams the result means essentially the same thing. Victory in the last round, or almost certain elimination for the two favourites. This game will be remembered as a tale of two penalties. Mikel’s woeful first-half effort that should have put Nigeria ahead, and the Zambia keeper stepping up with an inspired strike to earn a point.
And that’s full time!! 1-1 between Zambia and Nigeria, Mweene gets his team out of jail late on from the penalty spot and it’s another lead that’s fallen by the wayside for the Super Eagles.
89′ Musa becomes The Super Eagles second SUB, his replacement is Villareal’s, Ikechukwu Uche
Zambian Keeper is taking it
Nigeria’s substitution, Obiora in, Nosa out…
64′ A foul against Zambian just outside the 18 yard box after Emenike was brought down viciously
GOAL NIGERIA!!! That’s the one Emenike was looking for, the striker is played through by Mikel with the Zambia defence in shambles and fires home, beating Mweene at the near post.
And that’s the half-time whistle. We leave the action at a tense stalemate, still all to play for when we come back so don’t go anywhere!!
Zambia nearly finish with a flourish, Kalaba opens up the game from deep and Chansa takes it on the right with men to choose in the box. The cross is in, far too close to the keeper and the danger passes.
39′ Ogude with a SUPER tackle in his own box to save his side from going down, great defending from the big man
Enyeama saves a free kick, Zambia gets a corner, quickly taking, danger averted
Nigeria gets penalty. Mikel missed the penalty
22′: Enyeama saves a Zambian shot.
