Nigeria beat Chad in African Nations Cup qualifier

Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi got off to a winning start with victory over Chad.

Nigeria won 2-0 against Chad in their Group G opener in qualification for the 2017 African Nations Cup.

Nigeria were firm favourites for the game but struggled to find a way past their opponents, with goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama needing to be alert to keep the visitors at bay during the first half.

The Super Eagles threatened to break the deadlock in the second half when Aaron Samuel hit the post before Gbolahan Salami eventually put them ahead on 63 minutes with a stunning strike.

South Africa, Zambia and Ghana fail to live up to expectations in COSAFA Cup

Ephraim Mashaba's South Africa were expected to contend for COSAFA Cup but selection issues led to an early exit.

Cape Verde were eliminated after failing to score against Zambia.

The point from a goalless draw at the Estadio de Ebebiyin was not enough to secure Cape Verde a place in the last eight of the African Nations Cup, while 2012 champions Zambia also bowed out.

Had Tunisia beaten the Democratic Republic of Congo in the other Group B decider, Cape Verde would have progressed with their three points from three draws, but it instead finished 1-1 in Bata and DR Congo therefore reached the quarterfinals based on goals scored.
