Nigeria home-based Super Eagles yesterday did enough to qualify for their second Championship of African Nations after they held hosts, Burkina Faso, to a 0-0 draw to advance 2-0 on aggregate. The first leg in Port Harcourt, Rivers State a week ago ended 2-0 in favour of the home-based Eagles.

Nigeria home-based Super Eagles yesterday did enough to qualify for their second Championship of African Nations after they held hosts, Burkina Faso, to a 0-0 draw to advance 2-0 on aggregate. The first leg in Port Harcourt, Rivers State a week ago ended 2-0 in favour of the home-based Eagles. Hosts Burkina Faso dominated the return leg game, but just could not translate this dominance into goals as the Eagles struggled to find their bearing and did not create chances. The highlight of the match was recorded in the 21st minute, when the home team, Burkina Faso, failed to go ahead from the penalty spot after Austin Oboroakpo handled the ball inside his own 18-yard box.

Super Eagles Head coach Sunday Oliseh tweeted: Praise God! Super Eagles qualify for CHAN 2016 on 2-0 aggregate Vs Burkina Faso.

Other teams that have qualified to participate in CHAN early next year include: Hosts Rwanda, Tunisia, Morocco, Guinea, Mali, Angola, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Ethiopia, Uganda, Gabon, DR Congo, Niger and Nigeria. Only two slots are left to complete the list. Ties still to be decided on October 31:
