Godfrey Oboabona Salvages Draw For NigeriaNigeria's hopes of playing at next year's World Cup finals in Brazil were given a massive boost after the Super Eagles played a 1 - 1 draw in a tricky clash with the Brave Warriors of Namibia on Wednesday evening.

In the first half, the Super Eagles had the upper hand but that superiority did not give them goals.

The game was heading for a draw with only 13 minutes remaining until African Stars winger Deon Kavendji's volleyed goal gave the Southern African nation the lead.

Sunshine Stars skipper Godfrey Oboabona scored his first ever international goal from a free - kick in the 83rd minute to tie the match 1 -1.

Nigeria tops the Group F standings with 9 points from 5 games, followed by Malawi, whose miserable home form continued with a 2 - 2 draw against bottom team Kenya.
