Kelechi Iheanacho’s 67th-minute goal saved the Super Eagles’ blushes on Sunday as they continued on a bumpy ride in the 2026 World Cup qualification competition.
The goal drew the Nigerian side level for a 1-1 ending against Zimbabwe in their Group C Match Day 2 fixture at Butare in Rwanda.
Walter Musona had given the game’s hosts a 26th-minute lead from a free-kick from about 30 metres out.

The goal again underlined the need for the Nigerian team’s technical crew to rethink their goalkeeping department.
It was a kick that goalkeeper Francis Uzoho should have been able to do something about, given the distance, but he only leapt when it was too late.
The result means Nigeria has only two points from two matches in the group and will host South Africa on June 5 in their Match Day 3 fixture.
