Super Eagles Sneak Late Draw

World Cup Qualifying – Group F

Result: Nigeria 1-1 Kenya

Date: 23 March 2013

Venue: UJ Esuene Stadium

Nigeria had to rely on a stoppage-time goal to steal a 1-1 draw with Kenya in their World Cup qualifier in Calabar.

The Kenyan goal was under siege early on and it was Brian Onyango who was lucky to keep Victor Moses from scoring from a corner. The pressure remained and minutes later Jamal Mohammed was forced to clear with a header off the line, but then Brown Ideye also had a good chance, however, he scuffed his final shot after finding himself through on goal.

Surprisingly, against the run of play Kenya took the lead when Francis Kahata delivered a world-class free-kick which beat Vincent Enyeama and flew into the top corner.

Nigeria continued to push for the goal and were unlucky to be denied when Victor Moses saw his shot saved from point-blank range.

With time running out, Nigeria introduced substitute Nnamdi Oduamadi in place of Afcon star Sunday Mba and the change proved brilliant as Oduamadi delivered the equaliser four minutes into stoppage-time to give his side a share of the points.

Nigeria: Vincent Enyeama; Solomon Kwambe; Elderson Echejile; John Obi Mikel; Kenneth Omeruo; Godfrey Oboabona; Ogenyi Onazi; Brown Ideye; Obafemi Martins; Sunday Mba; Victor Moses

Kenya: Arnold Origi; Mulinge Ndeto; James Situma; Brian Mandela Onyango; David Owino; Johanna Omolo; Victor Wanyama; Jamal Mohammed; Francis Kahata; David Gateri; Dennis Oliech
