Nigeria Comes back from the Brink to qualify for South Africa 2010

After the disappointment of conceding a last minute equaliser to group rivals Tunisia in September 09 which seemed to have assured Tunisia of certain qualification if they beat Mozambique leaving Nigeria's army of fans resigned and quietly praying for a last minute miracle

The Super Eagles have done it and qualified for the World Cup for the fourth time in their history with a win over Kenya's Harambee Stars.2 strickes from hitman Obafemi Martins and another from Yakubu Aiyegbeni was enough to send a nation into raptures, and send the Super Eagles soaring to South Africa.

But they had work for victory by coming from behind, after Kenya opened the scoring through Dennis Oliech on 16 minutes. In, an open, entertaining game goals were always likely, and that proved to be the case. The Super Eagles continued to press for an equaliser but it didn't arrive before the break and so they went into the interval trailing.

Things brightened up for them in the second half however with the equaliser arriving just after the hour mark.when frontman Obafemi Martins was on target to make it 1-1.

Just three minutes later Super Eagles again had the lead when Yakubu Aiyegbeni - slotted home. Kenya managed to get back into the game. with an equalised on 79 minutes, but there was still time for another twist.

Martins kindly popped up with the winner for Shaiba Amudo's men with seven minutes sparking off wild celebrations in the Nigerian camp after receiving the news that Tunisia had lost 1-0 Mozambique.
