Nigeria this evening as good as ignominiously crashed out of the defence of the Africa Cup of Nations which they won last year in South Africa.

The Super Eagles recorded their second loss out of three matches, succumbing 0-1 to whipping boys Sudan at the Khartoum Stadium. Bakri Abdulgadir delivered the fatal blow in the 41st minute after heading past first choice goalie Vincent Enyeama for a historic victory.

With the loss, Nigeria dropped to the last position on the table behimd Sudan, while South Africa, who beat hosts Congo DR, leapfrogged to the top of the table.

Nigeria had last moth lost 2-3 to visiting Congo DR and then drew goalless away to South Africa. 

Though football is no mathematics, the chances of the Super Eagles pulling through in the race for Morocco 2015 appear very remote in view of the low morale in the team and the killer form of South Africa and Congo DR.
