Ex-international Nwankwo Kanu has congratulated the Super Eagles of Nigeria for taming the Desert Foxes of Algeria 3-1 in a World Cup qualifier. The former Arsenal star took to his Twitter handle to shower praise on the Super Eagles, who outscored one of the best teams in Africa.

"Congratulation boys, we are very proud of you all and well done," he saluted.

He also congratulated the coaching crew led by Gernot Rohr, NFF and the supporters. Nigeria remain top of Group B with six points from two matches, four points clear of closest rivals Cameroon. Both teams clash in Uyo in August 2017.
