The Super Sand Eagles of Nigeria defeated Morocco 6-1 in the semi-final of the Africa Beach Soccer Cup of Nations on Saturday to qualify for the final and get a ticket to the 2017 Beach Soccer World Cup in Bahamas.

Nigeria set up a final against Senegal to be played on Sunday night at the Eko Atlantic Beach. Both finalists will represent Africa at the World Cup next year.


This is the third time both teams will meet in the final of the competition with the Super Sand Eagles winning 6-5 in 2007 in South Africa, but Senegal beat the Eagles 7-4 four years later in Morocco.

Nigeria have won the Beach Soccer AFCON title twice, while Senegal are the most successful in the competition winning the title three times.
