The home based Super Eagles team have secured qualification for next year’s African Nations Championship,CHAN after they forced their opponent Burkina Faso to a goalless draw on Sunday in their second leg tie.
Having won the first leg 2-0 in Port Harcourt last weekend, the Eagles B team put up a resolute defensive display to earn a berth at the 2016 CHAN tournament to be hosted by Rwanda.
Hosts, Burkina Faso dominated the return leg game, but however failed to translate their dominance into goals as the Eagles struggled to find their bearing and did not create chances.
That nonetheless, the Eagles did just enough and are now set for their second participation in CHAN after missing out on the two earlier editions.
The Eagles made their maiden appearance at the 2014 edition in South Africa where they ended up as bronze medalist.
They will hope to do better in Rwanda next year.
