Nigeria beat Malawi 2-0

Written by

Nigeria beat Malawi  2-0  to reach playoffs for 2014 World Cup


The match started with Malawi playing the Nigerians to an even first 44 minutes until Emmanuel Emenike scored to break the deadlock just before the halftime whistle was blown by the ref.


Nigeria came back from the half time break more focused and played a dominating possession football led by Chelsea man John Obi Mikel.


The strategy employed by Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi seems to have worked as it took the Super Eagles just six minutes since their return from the halftime break to add to the scoreboard.


Victor Moses scored a masterful goal from the penalty spot after Musa was brought down in the box by Malawian defender Limbikani MZAVA.


Limbikani MZAVA was sent off at the 53rd minute mark by the referee Hamada EL MOUSSA after another hard tackle on Nigeria’s super-fast man Ahmed Musa.


The win earns the 2013 African Champions Nigeria a spot in the playoffs for the 2014 World Cup to be held in Brazil. Draws for the playoff will be held in Cairo, Egypt on September, 16, 2013.
