Nigeria have secured their place in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations with a game to spare after being held to a 1-1 draw by South Africa in Saturday's penultimate qualifying game.

Despite two questionable offside calls costing Gernot Rohr's men two goals, they remain at the summit of Group E with 10 points from five matches and will return to the Afcon stage for the first time since 2013.
