Super Eagles AFCON 2015 Qualifiers
General Secretary of the Nigeria Football Federation Musa Amadu has described Nigeria’s one point in two games in the qualifiers for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations as unacceptable. 
 
The Super Eagles, as African champions, risk failing to qualify for the competition after securing just one point in the two games played so far and Amadu reckons the results haven’t been good enough. 
 
“One point in two games is certainly unacceptable and not good enough. It’s quite unfortunate that we have found ourselves in this situation,” Amadu said.
 
The Super Eagles next play Sudan back to back – away and home – and Amadu reckons Nigeria must now win all its remaining games to be sure of a place at next year’s edition of the competition. 
 
“We next play Sudan, first away and at home and we must win these games. We cannot afford to drop anymore points at this stage if we are to make to to Morocco 2015,” Amadu added.
 
If the Super Eagles fail to qualify, it won’t be the first time they have failed to defend their crown as African champions as they didn’t participate at the 1996 AFCON in South Africa despite winning the previous edition in Tunisia. 
 
Then Head of State, Sani Abacha withdrew the team after former South African President, Nelson Mandela criticised the killing of Niger-Delta activist, Ken Saro-Wiwa.
