2015 AFCON: NIGERIA FAILS TO QUALIFY FOR FINALS


Reigning Africa Cup of Nations champions Nigeria will not defend their title in Equatorial Guinea after failing to qualify from Group A.
In the final round of matches which took place yesterday in Uyo, Nigeria were held 2-2 by South Africa, meaning they finished outside of their group’s top two automatic qualification spots with eight points – a total that also put them out of the running to be the best third-placed team.
South Africa had already assured their place at the tournament, which will be played from 17 January to 8 February, and only one spot is still outstanding.
Congo Brazzaville, Ivory Coast, Ghana, Guinea, Mali and DR Congo all claimed their tickets to the continent’s showpiece event with their results on Wednesday.
