Paul Aigbogun’s side had beaten Burundi 2-0 in their first game at the competition taking place in Niger.
South Africa had played out a 1-1 draw in their first tie of the competition against Niger.
Nigeria will now battle hosts Niger in their last match of the group.
Concise News had reported that Eagles coach Paul Aigbogun had admitted that the encounter with the Amajitas will be tough.
”We are entering a second game that will be different from the first which we won,” he said.
“I can’t say that our team will play in the same style as against Burundi but we know one thing; we are here to qualify for the World Cup.”
