The Eagles top their group with 9 points.
Africa champions, Nigeria, had to come from behind to force a 1-1 draw against Namibia on Wednesday night in a crucial 2014 World Cup qualifying match played in the capital city of Windheok.
The Brave Warriors, despite losing their Head Coach who resigned barely 48-hours to today’s game, also had a couple of their star players injured; but nonetheless gave the Super Eagles a tough fight.
Against the run of play, Namibia striker, Deon Kavendji Hotto, put the host ahead in the 77th minute as they looked likely to post an upset.
The Nigerian team like in past games got another late goal to salvage a point and extend their unbeaten run to 19 matches.
It was home boy, Godfery Oboabona, who rescued the day for Nigeria in the 83rd minute to keep the chances of making the Brazil World Cup high.
Nigeria with the point from Wednesday’s game still leads Group F with 9 points, Malawi second with 6 while Namibia now have 5 points and Kenya completes the group with 3 points.
Nigeria will play host to Malawi in the last game of this series.
