Despite the second period ending at a respectable 2-1, they went all fangs out in the third and final period to win 6-1.
Abu Azeez, who scored four in the 7-6 semi-final defeat of hosts Egypt, scored the Supersand Eagles’ only goal of the match.
He finished the tournament with eight goals while his total tally for Nigeria hit 104.
As the second placed team, the Nigerian team qualified for the 2019 FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup.
