JUST IN: Nigeria record biggest win ever, thrash Sao Tome 10-0 in AFCON qualifier

On Monday, the Super Eagles defeated the The Falcons and True Parrots of So Tomé and Prncipe at the Grand Stade Agadir, also known as Adrar Stadium.

Thursday’s 2-1 victory over Sierra Leone at the MKO Abiola Stadium in Abuja also resulted in three points for the Nigerian squad.

On Day 2 of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualification series in Morocco, Monday, Victor Osimhen scored four goals to lead the Super Eagles to a resounding victory.

Osimhen scored in the ninth, 48th, 65th, and 84th minutes, along with Moses Simon (28′), Moffi (43′, 60′), Oghenekaro Etebo (55′), Ademola Lookman (63′), and Emmanuel Dennis (90+2′).

Having pocketed another three points, Eagles are top of Group A.

Head Coach Jose Peseiro had said at the Aeroport Agadir Almarissa that the encounter against ‘The Falcons and True Parrots’ would bring the best out of his team as they seek to go top of the Group A table.

“We want to be the team at the top of the table, so we must fight hard against the opponents. Every match, we must commit ourselves fully to winning it. As I said earlier in the week, Nigeria have huge pedigree and they also have both quality and quantity of players. It is important that we select the best all the time to win the big games,” he had said.

Defender and deputy skipper William Ekong and midfielder Innocent Bonke had returned to their respective bases in England and France to attend to injuries copped during the international break.
