Nigeria’s Under-23 side have succeeded in clinching one of Africa’s three places in the men’s football tournament for next year’s Olympics in Rio.
The success came after a narrow defeat of hosts Senegal 1-0 in the first semi-final of the Under-23 Africa Cup of Nations to earn a place in Saturday’s final.
The important goal was scored by captain of the side, Peter Etebo from the penalty spot.
Senegal now face a crucial third-place match on Saturday, with the winners also earning a place in Brazil.
