Nigeria U-23 national men’s team beat Tanzania in Ibadan on Saturday 2-0 to advance to the third round of the Africa Cup of Nations qualifying series.
The Dream Team concluded the second-round fixtures with a 3-1 aggregate victory over the Tanzanians.
And after a goalless first half, Timileyin Ogunniyi broke the deadlock for the Dream Team in the 62nd minute.
Success Makanjuola doubled Nigeria’s advantage via a well-struck penalty kick seven minutes later.
Hard as they tried, the Tanzanians could not break down the Nigerian defence until the end of the encounter.
With the two-goal victory, the Dream Team will get a cash gift of N1 million from Super Eagles captain Ahmed Musa.
The Sivasspor forward had promised the u23 side five hundred thousand naira for every goal scored against the Tanzanians in Ibadan.
