Nigeria 2-0 Malawi: Emenike & Moses Give Eagles Play-off Ticket {FULL MATCH REPORT}

Nigeria earned a passage into the final round of Caf qualification for World Cup 2014 with a 2-0 victory over Malawi in Calabar on Saturday.
The Super Eagles were helped by goals from returning striker Emmanuel Emenike and a penalty from attacker Victor Moses.

The game began on a very competitive note with Liverpool loan signing Moses and Ahmed Musa tormenting the James Sangala-anchored Malawian defence. 

As early as the second minute, Limbikani Mzava was booked for a rough challenge on Moses who was on a goal-bound move.

Despite gaining most of the ball possession, Nigeria failed to get the curtain raiser as they failed to create clear cut chances.  The attack-minded Eagles did not relent as they challenged Tom Santifiet’s men for every ball. 

In the 11th minute, Musa saw his opportunity declared offside after he got a well-tailored cross from John Obi Mikel. Few minutes later, Ogenyi Onazi's shot went just wide as Stephen Keshi's men continued their search of the early goal.
