Flying High: Nigeria’s Super Eagles Set World Cup Record

Posted on Updated on

Following a 2-1 win over the Walia Antelopes of
Ethiopia, Nigeria’s Super Eagles have set a new
African record for longest unbeaten run in the
World Cup qualifiers.
Courtesy of the win, Nigeria have set a new
record of going unbeaten in 27 World Cup
qualifying matches.
The last time Nigeria tasted defeated in a World
Cup qualifier was as far back as 2004, when
they lost to Angola in Luanda.
Since then, Nigeria have won eighteen and
drawn nine of their last 27 World Cup qualifying
games, setting an African record.
