The Super Eagles of Nigeria opened their Qatar 2022 World Cup qualifying campaign with a 2-0 over the Lone Stars of Sierra Leone on Friday.
Leicester City’s Kelechi Iheanacho and Everton midfielder Alex Iwobi were the stars of the day, delivering a brace and two assists respectively.
Iheanacho opened the scoring in the 30th minutes after a sleek exchange of passes with Iwobi, following a short corner kick.
Iheanacho doubled his tally, after controlling an Iwobi header with his left foot, and finishing with a deft placed right-footed shot.
The eagles were the dominant side going into half time, and could have scored more.
The Super Eagles will next play the Blue Sharks of Cape Verde who they hope to pick off when they clash on Tuesday, September 7th.
Nigeria are drawn in Group C of the 2022 World Cup against Liberia, Cape Verde, and the Central African Republic.
