Super Eagles win in AFCON 2019 qualifier

Nigeria now have three points from two games of the qualifiers and face Libya next at home in October 2018.

Ahmed Musa gave Nigeria the lead in the 15th minute before Chidozie Awaziem added another goal in the first half.

Odion Ighalo netted from the spot in the second half to sealed the win for Nigeria.

After losing their first game of the qualifiers, the Super Eagles were looking to get their campaign back on track with a win against Seychelles.

Nigeria had the better moments and got their reward after Musa's fierce left-foot effort hit the post but bounced off the goalkeeper into the net.

Awaziem doubled the lead a few minutes later, pouncing on a ball to blast into the net after a Kelechi Iheanacho freekick had hit the post.

Ighalo scored from the penalty spot midway in the second half to seal the win.
