Nigeria took control of African World Cup 2014 qualifying Group F yesterday with a hard fought 1-0 away win over Kenya at the Moi International Sports Centre in Nairobi. The game was deadlocked at 0-0 for over eighty minutes until CSKA Moscow striker Ahmed Musa finally found a way past Duncan Ochieng in the Kenya goal. The win puts Nigeria top of the group on eight points from four games with two games remaining whilst Kenya stay rooted to the bottom with only two points and can no longer reach the next round because either Nigeria or Malawi is certain to exceed their maximum possible total of eight points.
In the other match in the group, Malawi drew 0-0 with Namibia at the Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre. It’s a result which does neither team many favours but it does at least keep them both in contention ahead of the final rounds of matches. The penultimate fixtures take place next Wednesday (12-06-2013) when Malawi take on Kenya in Blantyre and Namibia host Nigeria in Windhoek. The sixth and final fixtures are in September when Malawi visit Nigeria and Kenya receive Namibia.
The Group F table is now as follows:
