Super Eagles defeats Lesotho

It was a very comfortable evening’s work for the Super Eagles who ended their qualifying campaign for the Africa Cup of Nations with a 3-0 triumph over Group L’s bottom side, Lethoso.

A goal from Man of the Match, and constant danger, Victor Osimhen in the first half, was added to by Oghenekaro Etebo and Paul Onuachu in the second to take Nigeria onto 14 points from their six games.

Gernot Rohr was delighted to be able to have Everton dangerman Alex Iwobi in from the start. He had been a doubt until a late negative covid-19 test came through – and along with Iheanacho and their Napoli striker caused their visitors all sorts of problems. In fact, the only surprise was that it took 23 minutes for one of them to bag the opener.

The whole team played their part – even Uzoho needed to have his wits about him on a few occasions – but a special mention to both Wilfred Ndidi and OghenekaroEtebo who held together the midfield brilliantly and kept things ticking along.
