Home-based Super Eagles succumbed to another defeat against Togo as they failed to secure a place in the main WAFU Nations Cup last night.
Imama Amapakabo-led boys lost 2-1 at home to the Togolese side and will now compete in the plate section of the competition in Senegal.
The Togolese took the lead in the 16th minute through Moise Kossivi Adjah before the Eagles got a well-deserved equaliser in the 33rd minute courtesy of Sikiru Alimi’s fine strike.
Two minutes before half-time, Kangnivi Ama Tchoutchoui scored what proved to be the winner as Nigeria fell to a 6-2 aggregate loss following their 4-1 loss in the first leg
Both teams will clash a third time on October 19 in Nigeria to decide who will feature in next year’s CHAN in Cameroon.
