Rwanda beat South Africa 2-0 in the World Cup qualifiers and the result has renewed Jose Peseiro's hopes of helping the Super Eagles qualify.
First-half goals from Innocent Nshuti and Gilbert Mugisha sealed the massive result on all fronts for the Amavubi who now go top of Group C.
However, it's not just Rwandans who celebrated the result at the Huye Stadium but Nigeria as well because it denied South Africa the opportunity to open up a significant lead.
How Rwanda 2-0 South Africa helps Nigeria
Nigeria started their qualifiers journey with two disappointing draws against Lesotho and Zimbabwe with means the Super Eagles only have two points from a possible six.
South Africa started off with a 2-1 win against Benin to top the group and another win would have extended their lead at the top but Rwanda stopped that from happening.
Rwanda now have four points because they drew their first game against Zimbabwe but they are still top of Group C ahead of South Africa who are the only other team in this group to have won a game.
The other result in the group also worked in Nigeria's favour as Lesotho played out a goalless draw at home to Benin Republic.
This means the Super Eagles are third and just two points off the top of Group C, they have pretty much been taken off the hook by the other teams in the group and their World Cup qualification hopes are very much alive.
