Gbolahan Salami scored Nigeria’s first goal against Chad in their Gabon 2017 AFCON qualifier in Kaduna…on Saturday.

Telecommunications outfit, Globacom, has commended the Super Eagles for recording an important home win against Chad in the 2017 African Cup of Nations qualifying match played at the Ahmadu Bello Stadium in Kaduna on Saturday.

In a press statement in Lagos yesterday, Globacom gave kudos to the Super Eagles for recording the first win in the group, which has taken the team to the top of group G, pending when the Egypt-Tanzania match will be decided.

Hard fighting Chad put up a strong resistance in the first 45 minutes which ended goalless.

However, the Super Eagles scored two goals through Gbolahan Salami in the 65th minute and Odion Oghalo from the spot in the  80th minute.

“With this victory, the Super Eagles have moved to a commanding position in group G and the coaching crew should perfect a strategy to ensure that the team qualifies for the 2017 AFCON in Gabon. Nigeria cannot afford to be missing in action again from the most important tournament in continental football,” the statement stated.

Globacom advised the team to work towards picking at least a point each in their away matches in Cairo, N’djamena and Dodoma and win the two remaining home matches to avoid the mistake on 2014 which cost us the last Afcon ticket.

“Qualifying for the next Afcon by Super Eagles is a must and all hands must be on deck to make this a reality.” the statement added.
