Both Nigeria and Zimbabwe will get $250, 000 each
The home based Eagle on Saturday at the Cape Town Stadium in South Africa ended their campaign at the African Nations Championship on a winning note as they secured a lone goal victory over 10-man
The Eagles’ only goal came from debutant, Chinoso Obiozor, who was only playing his first game of the tournament in Saturday’s outing.
Obiozor rose above his markers and connected well to an in-swinger from his Enugu Rangers teammate, Ejike Uzoenyi, to give Nigeria the only goal late in the second half.
With the victory, the Eagles will be proud of their first outing at the CHAN tournament even as they would seek to improve on their performance
at the next edition of the tournament.
For their efforts both Nigeria and Zimbabwe will get $250, 000 each.
While Nigeria was denied a place in final by Ghana, it was Libya that stopped Zimbabwe from a dream final appearance.
Ghana play Libya in the final match later on Saturday.
