Nigeria 2 (4) : Moses (pen.) 20', Obinna 82'
Ethiopia 0 (1)
Nigeria's struggles in the first leg--at least for the first hour or so--meant that they had some work left to do today, as Ethiopia had arguably been the better side for a good portion of the first leg despite the 1-2 scoreline. It ultimately proved to be comfortable, however, as a Victor Moses penalty conversion on twenty minutes gave the hosts the lead, and a late Victor Obinna free-kick (aided by some poor Sisay Bancha goalkeeping) killing the match off and sending Nigeria to Brazil.
It wasn't the prettiest of matches, with few standing out on either side, though Moses showed the requisite glimpses of class with the ball at his feet, especially as the gap in quality told during the second half. It's now a deserved rest for he and his teammates, who have now qualified for consecutive World Cups and won an African Nations Cup in between.
So congratulations to Victor Moses and Nigeria, who become the first African side to seal qualification for 2014.
