Nigerian Super Eagle win against Sao tome for African Nations Cup qualifier. Nigeria began their campaign by coming from behind to beat Sierra Leone 2-1 on Thursday, and Osimhen and Moses Simon did the damage in the first half in Agadir.
Osimhen was set up by Simon for the opener in the ninth minute and returned the favour before the Napoli forward laid on the third for Terem Moffi two minutes before the break.
The Super Eagles missed out on a place at the 2022 World Cup in Africa’s play-offs in March but have made a great start in Group A as they seek a spot at next year’s Nations Cup in Ivory Coast. The success away from home is the highest win the West Africans have recorded, superseding a 10-1 triumph over Benin in 1959.
Watford striker Emmanuel Dennis and Ademola Lookman, who spent last season on loan at Leicester City, were also on the score sheet for Nigeria.
Napoli striker Osimhen, now has 15 goals in 22 international caps.
Nigeria join holders Senegal, Algeria, Burkina Faso and Mali with two wins from their first two qualifiers, with the next two rounds of matches scheduled for September.
