Nigeria’s Super Eagles destroy Sao Tome and Principe 10-0 on Monday afternoon. This massive win increases our chances of qualifying for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations. 10-0! Most of us couldn’t believe our eyes. Lol. It was a match most didn’t even watch. Many didn’t even know there was a match to begin with. Imagine the shock to see the news of a 10-0 victory. Well, it really happened!
Firstly, you wouldn’t blame supporters of the Super Eagles. Football is a game of passion, and it does affect people. It is why Arsenal fans who are Nigerian should be national treasures. Those guys are trying please. Anyway, as a result, Victor Osimhen’s four goals, Terem Moffi’s brace and goals from Moses Simon, Peter Etebo, Ademola Lookman, and Emmanuel Dennis completed the obliteration at the Stade Adrar in Morocco.
Subsequently, by the time the dust settled, it was a whooping 10-0 demolition. This scoreline is Nigeria’s biggest win ever in a competitive game, beating the previous record of a 10-1 win over Dahomey (Benin) recorded in 1959. Victor Osimhen also bagged four goals and his first ever hat-trick in a Nigeria shirt. The Napoli striker has bagged five goals in two games of the AFCON 2023 Group A qualifiers after his goal saw Nigeria secure all points against Sierra Leone along with his four tonight in Agadir as the Super Eagles destroy Sao Tome and Principe.
Consequently, there are already strong comparisons between Victor Osimhen and Rasheed Yekini. To clarify, Victor Osimhen has now scored 15 goals in just 22 games for the Super Eagles. Who knows, he may be the one who will break Rasheed Yekini’s record of 37 goals for Nigeria with the way he’s going.
What Does This Mean?
As a result, it’s a solid start for the Jose Peseiro era on the Nigeria bench as the Portuguese racks up two wins and 12 goals in his first two competitive matches in charge of the Super Eagles.
Nigeria now lead Group A with six points from two matches, while the Central Africans remain at the base of the log with no points. The Super Eagles continue their campaign against Guinea-Bissau in September.
