Nigeria tops Ethiopia, advances in African Cup
RUSTENBURG, South Africa (AP) -Striker Victor Moses converted two late penalties to lead Nigeria to a 2-0 win over Ethiopia and a spot in the quarterfinals of the African Cup of Nations on Tuesday.
Moses scored in the 80th and 90th minutes, sparing his team elimination from the competition with a scoreless draw at Royal Bafokeng Stadium.
Ethiopia, in its first tournament appearance in more than 30 years, finished bottom of Group C.
Moses was twice fouled inside the area to win the penalties, and then kept his cool to find the net both times for the two-time African champions.
