Super Eagles B Lose 4-3 On Aggregate To Togo, Crash Out of CHAN 2020
The Super Eagles B failed to qualify for the 2020 African Nations Chammpionship (CHAN) billed for Cameroon despite a 2-0 win against Togo in the second leg of their final qualifying round fixture at the Agege Stadium Lagos on Saturday night, reports Completesports.com.
The Imama Amapakabo’s charges lost 4-3 on aggregate to the Hawks having earlier lost the first 4-1 in Lome.
The Home Eagles mounted pressure on the Togolese right from start and were rewarded for their positive approach when Lobi Stars’ forward Sikiru Alimi broke the deadlock with an eighth minute goal.
Alimi went close again in the 25th minute, but his goal-bound effort was cleared off the line by a Togolese defender.
Ibrahim Sunusi nearly added the second goal five minutes later but his shot missed target.
The Eagles got their second goal in the 72nd minute through Alimi who fired home from outside the box.
The Eagles however failed to find the much needed third goal despite the centre referee adding additional 10 minutes.
