Super Eagles Team B failed to qualify for 2020 CHAN

After a 4-1 loss away in Lomo in late September, the Super Eagles Team could only manage a 2-0 win at home.

In a game played at the Agege Stadium on Saturday, October 19, Imama Amapakabo’s boys took the early in the eighth minute.

The Super Eagles Team B had started on the front foot from the first minute and got their reward through Lobi Stars’ forward Sikiru Alimi who broke the deadlock.

Alimi could have made it two in the 25th minute but his effort on goal was cleared off the line by a Togolese defender.

Ibrahim Sunusi also went close in the 35th minute but he couldn’t get his shot on target from a good area.

Needing two goals in the second half to seal qualification, the Super Eagles Team B turned on the pressure again at the restarted.

It wasn’t until the 72nd minute that Alimi scored again from just outside the box to double Nigeria’s lead.

The Super Eagles pressed again for another goal but could not get it as Togo held on to get a 4-3 win on aggregate.

This loss means that Nigeria will miss a fourth CHAN tournament. Nigeria have only been to two of the last five CHAN tournaments.
