Nigeria’s Under-23 football team played out a 1-1 draw against Senegal in the Men’s football of the All Africa Games on Saturday, September 12, 2015.

The team, which has already qualified for the semi final of the tournament, ensured it maintained leadership of the group as substitute, Mustapha Abdullahi, fired a canon from inside 18-yard box in the concluding minutes of added time to secure a point for Samson Siasia’s team.
