Goal-droughted Super Eagles finished second behind Equatorial Guinea in Group A after their opponents Guinea-Bissau netted an own goal.
Conversely, the Indomitable Lions managed a late comeback against The Gambia to progress behind a perfect Senegal in Group C.
Nigeria were unimpressing in their final game of Group A against winless Guinea-Bissau, but Jose Peseiro’s men secured maximum points to finish with seven points and qualify in second.
President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s message to the Eagles did not mince words, telling them he had not so far been impressed with their performance at the games.
Their struggle for goals at AFCON 2023 has seen the Super Eagles stars netting just three despite arriving Ivory Coast as the competition’s top attraction.
