Zungu, who has been a key player for his nation at the ongoing tournament, starting each of their last three games, scored the winning goal against Namibia.

He played in the side that defeated the Eagles 2-0 in Uyo two years ago and missed the return leg in November 2018 due to a knee injury.

Speaking ahead of the tie, Zangu said: “With Nigeria, they are a good team, from tomorrow we will start watching their videos and see how they play.

“For now, I am just happy with this win, we will focus on Nigeria from tomorrow.

“They have got top midfielders, they have good attackers, I can’t spot one that I can say is the best.

He added that “There is a number of them that are the best, for us it is just to have confidence because we are a good team and we showed character tonight, and hopefully we carry on from here, try to improve, be humble and take every game as it comes, and hopefully we’ll get more positive results.”
