The Eagles’ only goal came from debutant, Chinoso Obiozor, who was only playing his first game of the tournament in Saturday’s outing.

For their efforts both Nigeria and Zimbabwe will get $250, 000 each.

With the victory, the Eagles will be proud of their first outing at the CHAN tournament even as they would seek to improve on their performance
at the next edition of the tournament.

While Nigeria was denied a place in final by Ghana, it was Libya that stopped Zimbabwe from a dream final appearance.

Obiozor rose above his markers and connected well to an in-swinger from his Enugu Rangers teammate, Ejike Uzoenyi, to give Nigeria the only goal late in the second half.

Ghana play Libya in the final match later on Saturday.
