Warri Wolves’ ace Abu Azeez was also among the scorers for Nigeria, as bogey team Senegal ran away 6-5 winners, with a last minute winner.

Nigeria had spanked Ghana 5-2 on Friday and looked quite good for a place in the final.

NFF 1st Vice President, Barrister Seyi Akinwunmi praised the players for their doggedness, but said they should now imbibe a winning spirit. He charged them to go all out and claim something in Sunday’s classification match against South Africa.

In Saturday’s classification matches, Mozambique edged Ghana 2-1 while Morocco pounded Seychelles 6-0.
