Madagascar humiliate Nigeria in AFCON shocker


The Super Eagles of Nigeria lost to Madagascar in their final group game of the 2019 African Cup of Nations.

Madagascar scored one goal in each half as they held out for the unlikely victory over the three-time African champions.

The underdogs had better opportunities in the match held at the Alexandria Stadium despite Nigeria enjoying the lion share of possession.

The result means that Madagascar have qualified as group winners after picking up 7 points.

Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr, made five changes to the team that defeated Guinea by a lone goal last time out.

Captain, John Obi Mikel, returned to the starting line-up while youngster, Alex Iwobi, dropped out.
