Nigeria became the first African nation to qualify for 2018 Fifa World Cup after defeating Zambia 1-0 on Saturday.
Alex Iwobi's second half goal made the difference as Gernot Rohr's men remained unbeaten after five games in Group B.
And victory at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium sent the social media into a frenzy as football enthusiasts celebrated the Super Eagles' qualification for the World Cup in Russia.
Best thing about this group of Super Eagles players is how happy they are when it's time to play games for Nigeria. Passion for the colours.— Gallião Pequeno (@Cerebrone) October 7, 2017
Considering the group we just absolutely steamrolled, Gernot Rohr deserves all my plaudits, totally spot on man and game management— Alajo™| Russia 2018 (@Sam_is_cray) October 7, 2017
We're going to Russia! We're a nation that wins together when we are 100% behind a team. Nigerians aren't 'criminals'. Nigerians are winners— Reno Omokri (@renoomokri) October 7, 2017
