Chelsea attacker Victor Moses was on the mark as Nigeria became the first African nation to book their place at next summer's World Cup finals following a 2-0 win over Ethiopia in the second leg of their play-off in Calabar.

A Moses penalty and a quickly-taken Victor Obinna free-kick secured a 4-1 aggregate success to end Ethiopia's dream of appearing at their first ever World Cup finals.

The Super Eagles had not been beaten in a World Cup qualifier at the UJ Esuene Stadium since 1981 and a 2-1 win in Addis Ababa last month ensured they were red-hot favourites to progress.
