Nigeria has become the first African nation to book a spot at the 2018 World Cup after a 1-0 win over Zambia in Uyo. 21 year-old Super Eagles forward,  Alex Iwobi’s 73rd minute strike made sure the Super Eagles qualified for next summer’s World Cup in Russia.

Alex Iwobi took his national team to the world stage shortly after he came in as a substitute at the 65th minute of the game.
