The Super Eagles qualified for next year's continental tournament in Cameroon after being held to a stalemate at the FNB Stadium

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.

Buhle Mkhwanazi's own goal put the Super Eagles ahead in the 10th minute before Lebo Mothiba's equaliser six minutes later.

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.
