Akwa United hope Federation Cup win leads to more success

Last Sunday, Nigeria's domestic football season came to a close with Akwa United edging Lobi Stars to claim the Federation Cup.

Lobi, winners in 2003 and finalists in 2005 and 2012, were the underdogs coming into the final in Lagos. That might have been a bit of a surprise, given that Akwa had only just escaped relegation in the league a week earlier by claiming a nerve-jangling 1-0 victory over Lobi. The result meant Akwa finished in 16th position, just two places above the drop zone.

Isaac Success continued his good start to the season by having a hand in both of Granada's goals in their 2-0 win at home to Athletic Bilbao on Sunday. It was his square pass that Athletic defender Aymeric Laporte turned into his own net for the first, while he converted the second himself with a well-controlled volleyed finish from inside the area.

Nigeria progressed to the group stages of CAF World Cup qualifying with what, in the end, proved to be a routine 2-0 win over Swaziland on Tuesday.

There was not much routine about the performance, however. Swaziland made life tough for the Super Eagles and even came close to a first half goal. But they were eventually subdued by an excellent free kick from Moses Simon, and Efe Ambrose's late side-footed finish from Sylvester Igbonu's free kick. Here are five points from Tuesday's match:

Martins and Iheanacho boost Nigeria, but Super Eagles fail to beat Swaziland

Kelechi Iheanacho
Kelechi Iheanacho is starting to make his mark on the senior team.

Struggling Nigeria were held to a 0-0 draw by Swaziland on Friday in the first leg of African World Cup qualification -- but while the result may have fallen below expectations it was not all doom and gloom.

There is still the second leg to come in Port Harcourt, where the Super Eagles are expected to finish the job next week. Here are five things of note from the first game:
