Wolves Get Promotion To Premier League

Nigeria goalkeeper Carl Ikeme's English Championship club Wolverhampton Wanderers have secured promotion back to the Premier League after Fulham failed to beat Brentford on Saturday.

David Stockdale made smart stops from Romain Saiss and Jota to keep Wolves at bay, but was powerless to do anything about substitute Benik Afobe's clipped finish from Alfred N'Diaye's pass with three minutes remaining.

Two clubs are automatically promoted from the 24-team second-tier Championship with teams in third to sixth vying for the third promotion spot via the play-offs.

Birmingham were reduced to 10 men in the 52nd minute when Harlee Dean was sent off for his challenge on Helder Costa.

The Midlands club ended their six-year exile from the top flight without playing when close rivals Fulham could only draw 1-1 with Brentford, who equalised in the 94th minute.

Nigeria moves five places up — Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings
Senegal are second on the continent but they dropped a spot to 28th in the world while DR Congo climbed a spot to 38th. Nigeria's group opponents, Argentina , Croatia and Iceland were ranked 5th, 18th and 22nd respectively.

Their superior goal difference over second-placed Cardiff City means that honour is nearly secured already. "It is why we work, for our fans", Nuno said.

Nuno allowed his players to celebrate with a beer in the changing room after the game and he added: "That is something I have never allowed".

They've gained 28 out of their 42 Championship video games this season and have misplaced simply six.

Stockdale came to Birmingham's rescue again at the start of the second half - saving from Jota following his surging run into the penalty area before City's task then became even harder when Dean was dismissed for bringing down Costa as he raced towards the penalty area.
