Nigeria 3-0 Lethoso: Game summary
It was A very enjoyable evening for the Super Eagles who ended their qualifying campaign for the African Cup of Nations with a 3-0 triumph over Lethoso, the Group L goalkeeper.
A Man of the Match goal and constant danger Victor Osimhen was supplemented in the first half by Oghenekaro Etebo and Paul Onuachu in the second to bring Nigeria to 14 points from their six games.
Gernot Rohr what I am very happy to have Everton-Dangerman Alex Iwobi with me from the start – He had doubts until a later negative Covid-19 test came through – and, along with Iheanacho and their Napoli striker, caused all sorts of problems for their visitors. Actually, The only surprise was that it took one of them 23 minutes to bag the opener.
The whole team played a part – even Uzoho had to have his wits about him on a few occasions – but A special mention goes to both Wilfred Ndidi and OghenekaroEtebo, who held the midfield together superbly and let things tick.
We may have to Wait until January 2022 to see how the AFCON finals play out, but fans of the Super Eagles expect great performance from their heroes.
