Nigeria miss chance to progress

Nigeria were held to a 1-1 draw in Namibia on Wednesday and missed the chance to book their place in the African World Cup play-offs, but their fate remains in their own hands.

Malawi's failure to win their home game against Kenya earlier in the day meant Nigeria would progress with a victory over Namibia, but they were staring defeat in the face after Deon Hotto Kavendji's 77th-minute goal caused panic before Godfrey Oboabona equalised seven minutes from time.

It means Stephen Keshi's Super Eagles head off to the Confederations Cup knowing they require a point at home to Malawi in the final round of group games in September to go through - but if they lose it will be their visitors who make the play-offs.

Earlier in the day, Malawu missed the chance to go top when Chimango Kayira's late own-goal earned Kenya a 2-2 draw in Blantyre.

After Robin Ngalande's 46th-minute opener was cancelled out by Jamal Mohammed (52), the hosts retook the lead through Robert Ng'ambi with nine minutes remaining only for Kayira to put through his own net one minute from time.
