Ibraheem Jabaar's equaliser in the 74th minute ensured the five-time world champions finish their Group A campaign unbeaten with seven points from three matches.
The lone point secured at the Chamazi Stadium also confirmed Nigeria's progress to the semi-finals of the U17 Africa Cup of Nations and football fans across the country have taken to social media to congratulate the team.

The performance by our Golden Eaglets, and the crucial goal by @ABSIlorinFC’s very own Olusegun Olakunle, which earned them a coveted spot in the Brazil #FIFAU17WC is a testament to our ability to nurture homegrown talents in our domestic leagues.— Abubakar Bukola Saraki (@bukolasaraki) April 20, 2019

Up Nigeria 🇳🇬
Good game lads. The Uganda boys played well as a very good team. Sad they can't go to the world cup. They impressed all through the 3 games. The Golden Eaglets are traditionally expected to be superior.— Ehebha Innocent (@alwayz05) April 20, 2019
