Yesterday afternoon, the Nigerian male soccer team, Super Eagles, defeated their counterparts from Swaziland by 2 goals to nothing.
Domestic league stars, Chima Akas and Austin Oboroakpo were also preferred to their Europe-based counterparts as Nigeria went for broke against a team ranked 71 spots below them in the latest FIFA ranking.
Moses Simon opened scoring for Nigeria, six minutes into the second after a sublime free kick before Celtic defender Efe Ambrose tapped home a second goal, three minutes from time.
Phumlami Dlamini of Swaziland was sent off in the closing minutes of the explosive duel for a second booking.
Swaziland applied defensive tactics that Nigeria failed to break.
Though the Eagles had a handful of scoring opportunities in the first period, they fluffed, as Ahmed Musa, Moses Simon and Odion Ighalo all wasted their chances.
Fans are already expressing their delight after the win against Swaziland because it progressed the team into the next round in the qualifying series of the world cup.
