General Game Stats Chart


Minute   Description
90' +4 Four of the seven minutes stoppage time are done and Beyene comes close with an attempt which goes just over the bar for Ethiopia!
90' +2 J. Yobo enters the game and replaces J. Obi Mikel.
@ENGRJUSTMAN was right after all it seems: "Nigeria has all it takes to win, but KESHI'S TACTICAL ABILITY IS QUESTIONABLE. AHMED MUSA IS NEEDED."
90' Penalty goal scored by V. Moses for Nigeria!
GAME SET AND MATCH! Hintsa guesses the right way but cannot quite get a touch on the ball, as Moses nestles the spot-kick into the bottom left corner.
88' The penalty still hasn't been taken as the match officials are not satisfied with the midfielder's attire.. the measures taken to amend the situation? Tape on the back of his jersey!
85' S. Bancha gets a second yellow card and is sent off.
PENALTY TO NIGERIA... AGAIN!!! The Ethiopian goalkeeper is sent off for wiping out Musa in the box, and Hintsa is forced to deputise between the sticks as his country have run out of substitutes to bring on!
82' S. Bancha gets yellow.
Terrific save from Enyeama to deny Said from levelling the scores with a header in the box. Moments later, Ethiopia defend yet ANOTHER free kick and Sisay does wonderfully well to keep his team in with a shout following Mikel's delivery!
80' Penalty goal scored by V. Moses for Nigeria!
As things stand, Nigeria will join Burkina Faso in qualifying from Group C, with Afcon holders Zambia on their way out of the competition!
79' Moses is hauled down in the box and he steps up to take the resulting spot-kick....
The hopes of a nation rest on the forward's shoulders... AND, COOL AS YOU LIKE, HE WRONGFOOTS THE GOALKEEPER WITH A COMPOSED FINISH!!!
78' A. Girma gets yellow.
77' It's getting desperate for Nigeria now. Mba finds space on the edge of the box with the ball at his feet, but instead of looking for options either side of him, he shoots wayward. They are in urgent need of inspiration here...
