Osimhen Scores Four As Super Eagles Wallop Sao Tome And Principe 10 Nil


Nigeria brushed off their Matchday 2 opponents, Sao Tome & Principe in the African Cup of Nations, AFCON, qualifiers to sit in a commanding position in Group A.

Napoli striker Victor Osimhen scored four goals as the Super Eagles spanked Sao Tome and Principe 10-0 on Monday.

The only time the Super Eagles have gone into double figures was a 10-1 victory over Benin Republic over six decades ago.

Osimhen got his first two goals via headers. Moses Simon and Terem Moffi added to Osimhen’s first goal to end the first half three goals up.

Oghenekaro scored a spectacular free-kick and Emmanuel Dennis scored from the spot dip in stoppage time to get in on the act.

Ademola Lookman and Terem Moffi got their first Super Eagles goal as it was simply a stroll in the park for Jose Peseiro’s men.

Osimhen now leads the AFCON qualifiers goal-scoring chart with five (5) goals with just two games in. The next matchday is in September against Guinea Bissau.
