African giant Nigeria will not play in next year’s Under-20 Africa Cup of Nations in Zambia after the West Africa side was eliminated by little fancied opposition.
Nigeria, who are the defending champions of the competition, fell to a shock 3-4 home defeat to Sudan who sealed a famous qualification.
Former world champions Ghana were dumped out on Friday by Senegal 3-2 on aggregate despite the Black Satellite winning 1-0 in Cape Coast.
But the biggest surprise came on Saturday when Nigeria hosted ten-man Sudan in Lagos leading 2-1 from the first leg.
But Sudan – who had a man sent off – came from behind to level the tie 5-5 overall and progress on away goals.
