Nigeria qualify for 2017 Fifa Beach Soccer World Cup
Posted on: December 18, 2016, 12:00:58 AM
Nigeria will represent Africa at the 2017 Fifa Beach Soccer World Cup in Bahamas after defeating Morocco 6-1 in the semis of the 2016 Caf Beach Soccer Africa Cup of Nations.

A brace from Abu Azeez and Emmanuel Owhoferia plus strikes from Suleiman Ogodo and Emeka Ogbona were all the Super Sand Eagles needed to breeze past Mustapha El Hadaoui’s side who got their lone goal through Sami Lazal.

Nigeria have participated in four Beach World Cups, with their best performance quarter-final appearances in 2007 and 2011 editions.

In the first semi-final game played, Senegal came from behind twice to earn a 5-2 victory against Egypt. They now face Audu Adamu’s side in the Beach Soccer Africa Cup of Nations final on Sunday.
