Emmanuel Emenike of Nigeria, no. 9, celebrates his opening goal in Friday's encounter with reigning champions Zambia. Five minutes before the end of the match, Nigeria conceded a penalty, and Zambian goalkeeper Kennedy Mweene equalised for the champions.

After a grueling 90minutes encounter at the the Mhobela Stadium in Nelspruit , South Africa, Nigeria and Zambia played a 1-1 draw.

What is your opinion of the game? Was the Zambian penalty deserved? Did Nigeria play better compared to her first game? Was Skipper Joseph Yobo's absence felt? What is Nigeria's chance(s) of qualifying from the group?

Do have your say!
