[Video] World Cup 2014 Qualifier – Kenya 0 – 1 Nigeria (Highlights)
The Super Eagles of Nigeria on Wednesday, in Nairobi, grabbed the three points at stake after defeating the Harambee Stars of Kenya 1-0. The match was in Group F of the African qualifiers for the 2014 FIFA
World Cup finals, to be hosted by Brazil in 2014. Nigeria’s lone goal was scored by Ahmed Musa in the 81st minute of the game played at the MOI International Sports Centre, Kasarani. The Kenyans had drawn
1-1 with Nigeria in Calabar in an earlier encounter. Earlier on Wednesday, hosts Malawi were held 0-0 by Namibia. The two
matches are part of the 20 slated to be played between June 5 and June 9, in the fourth match day of the qualifiers’ second round.
Starting on Wednesday and running through Sunday, 20 matches will be played in the fourth round of matches in the second stage of the qualifiers. The following week, the
fifth round of matches will follow, while the last set of games in the second round will be played in September. The 10 group winners
will advance to the third and final stage of the qualifiers, where they will be drawn into home-and-away ties. The aggregate winner
of each tie will qualify to represent Africa at the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Unlike during the 2010 FIFA World Cup staged in South Africa,
five countries will fly the African flag in the forthcoming World Cup. The host nation’s automatic qualification meant that Africa
fielded six teams at the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
