Nigeria's U23s have qualified for the 2016 Rio Olympic games after defeating hosts Senegal 1-0 in the semi-final of the CAF U-23 Cup of Nations on Wednesday.
Stand-in skipper Oghenekaro Etebo converted a 77th minute penalty after Ousseynou Thioune handled the ball inside the 18-yard box.
Senegal dominated large parts of the encounter and were awarded a 46th minute penalty after Emmanuel Daniel brought down a Senegalese player.
Daniel made amends by saving the spot kick from Ibrahima Keita.
The U-23 Eagles will now wait for the winners between South Africa and Algeria in Saturday's final.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
