The Super of Eagles of Nigeria risk not qualifying for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations after going down to a shocking 1-0 defeat against Sudan on Saturday at the Khartoum Municipal Stadium.
A solitary strike by Mohamed Babeker in the 42nd minute proved to be the difference between the Sudanese and the misfiring African Champions.
The goal that Sudan scored was amateurish as both Godfrey Oboabona and Kenneth Omeruo were seriously guilty of ball watching and the hosts made the best use of the oppourtunity that came their way.
With the latest defeat, the Eagles are now rooted to the bottom of the log in Group A with just one point from three games, South Africa are now surprisingly dictating the pace with seven points from three games.
Congo are second with six while Ethiopia have overtaken Nigerian to now occupy third spot with three points.
Before Saturday’s win, the last time Sudan beat Nigeria was far back in 1967 while the last time they managed scoring against the Eagles was in 1973.
The Eagles next match is against Sudan in Abuja, while South Africa will take on Congo.
Even though Nigeria is not completely out of the running to get a ticket to qualify for next month’s Nations Cup in Morocco, it is increasingly looking bleak with another disappointing result on Saturday
