AFCON 2013 qualifiers: Eagles to meet Liberia in final qualifying round

The Super Eagles of Nigeria will have to defeat Liberia in order to be earn a ticket to the 2013 Africa Nations Cup to be hosted by South Africa.

The two time Africa Champions have been pitched against Liberia for the final round of qualifiers for the continental showpiece.
