Group leaders Nigeria made sure of a slot at African football’s biggest houseparty far back in November 2018 after a 1-1 draw with South Africa 

In Mahé Island on 8th September 2018, goals by Ahmed Musa, defender Chidozie Awaziem and Odion Ighalo sealed a 3-0 win and kept the Eagles in the hunt for a ticket to the 2019 AFCON. 

Wins over Libya home and away and the draw in South Africa took Nigeria to the finals.

On Friday, Technical Adviser Gernot Rohr will unleash his best legs, as a high –score win would put the Eagles in good and great mood for Tuesday’s prestige international friendly against seven –time African champions Egypt at the same venue.

Twenty –four hours before that encounter, the Nigeria U23 squad will seek to overturn a 0-2 first leg loss to their Libyan counterparts in a 2019 Africa U23 Cup of Nations qualifying first round fixture, also at the Stephen Keshi Stadium.

CAF AWARDS:African Football Stars Focus on Dakar.

Caf awards and 2019 Afcon hosts:The Confederation of African Football (Caf) president Ahmad Ahmad has landed in Dakar,the Senegalese capital of Dakar for the Caf Awards as well as the Caf Executive Committee meeting to select the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) hosts.

Anticipation and anxiousness are already characterising the two events that would be arguably the most prominent in the next three days among other minority proceedings.

Egypt star Mohamed Salah and his Liverpool striking partner Sadio Mane of Senegal, as well as Arsenal and Gabon’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, are vying for the 2018 African Footballer of the Year crown.

The best player on the continent would be capped on Tuesday from this repeat of last year’s final three, that was won by Salah.

Wednesday’s Caf Executive Meeting will pick the country that will replace Cameroon as host of the 2019 Afcon.

South Africa and Egypt have indicated their readiness to host the 24-team Afcon tournament which kicks off in five months 

“Many guests are scheduled to attend the (awards) ceremony including the President of Senegal Macky Sall, the President of Rwanda Paul Kagame, and former soccer player and now President of Liberia George opong Weah. Caf President Ahmad will also meet FIFA boss Gianni Infantino, and Fatma Samoura, the Fifa General Secretary.

Ahmad will also address the media on Monday.

Other events expected in Senegal include Monday’s exhibition match between African football legends against the Senegal Class of 2002 that reached the Fifa World Cup quarter-finals.

Man City Cut Liverpool’s Lead to 7 points

After two straight defeats, English Premier League defending champions Manchester City have bounced back when beat Southampton 3-1 and reduce league leaders Liverpool’s advantage to seven points.

Southampton responded to David Silva’s early opener when Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg took the ball off Oleksandr Zinchenko and fired it into the top corner.

City had luck on their side when Raheem Sterling’s shot deflected off James Ward-Prowse to make it 2-1.

Sergio Aguero’s back-post header completed the scoring before half-time.

Southampton goalscorer Hojbjerg – who had only just returned from suspension – was shown a straight red card for a lunging tackle on Fernandinho with just over five minutes to go.

City had a number of decent chances as Silva, Aguero and Riyad Mahrez all went close in the first half and Aguero smacked the crossbar after the break.

Southampton threatened too and Charlie Austin was twice denied by City keeper Ederson in the first half before Hojbjerg’s equaliser.

But the Saints were ultimately undone by Pep Guardiola’s free-flowing side, who move up to second place in the table.

Liverpool had gone 10 points clear of City at the top of the table with a devastating 5-1 thrashing of Arsenal on Saturday, meaning the defending champions needed victory to keep pace in the title race.

It means City can cut Liverpool’s lead to four points when they meet at the Etihad Stadium on 3 January.
