Super Eagles defenders, Leon Balogun and Shehu Abdullahi have expressed joy as Nigeria qualifies for the 2019 African Cup of Nations (AFCON).
The Super Eagles qualified for AFCON after they were held to a 1-1 draw in their last Group E encounter with South Africa at the FNB Stadium on Saturday.
The Super Eagles launched themselves back to the continental championship after missing out on two consecutive editions since winning the 2013 edition.
Defenders Shehu Abdullahi and Leon Balogun reacting, appreciated the team’s gallantry.
@LeonBalogun on Twitter wrote: “We made it – AFCON 2019! South Africa really tried, but we are the Supereagles.
“I am really happy and proud to be part of this team that brought joy to so many Nigerians by “just chasing a ball.’’
“Not just back home but all over the world! Thanks for the amazing support and love always.”
Shehu on the other hand wrote: ” We made it. Qualified, AFCON 2019″.
Nigeria tops the group with 10 points ahead of South Africa, with nine points with Libya and Seychelles on seven and one point respectively.
Nigeria will face Seychelles in their final Group E game in March 2019, while Libya who must win to qualify for the 2019 AFCON will host South Africa in Sfax, Tunisia in their final game.
