Osimhen nets four as Eagles humiliate São Tomé


Super Eagles and Napoli striker, Victor Osimhen, scored four goals as Nigeria thrashed São Tomé and Príncipe 10-0 in their Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers on Monday.

Jose Paseiro's men began their qualifiers with a comeback 2-1 victory over a stubborn Sierra Leone side on Thursday at the M.K.O Abiola Stadium, ending their five-game winless streak since January.

Osimhen who has been linked to a big-money move to top European clubs gave his suitors something to think about when he netted the ninth-minute opener.

Nantes star Moses Simon doubled the lead in the 28th minute before Terem Moffi added his name to the score list two minutes before the break.

Osimhen made it 4-0 three minutes into the second half and Oghenekaro Etebo made it 5-0 in the 55th minute before Moffi completed his brace five minutes after.

New boy Ademola Lookman opened his Super Eagles account in the 63rd minute before Osimhen netted his hattrick in the 65th minute but made it four in the 84th minute.

Emmanuel Dennis 90+2' penalty completed Paseiro's men's rout against São Tomé.

Nigeria will face second-placed Guinea-Bissau, who were forced to a 2-2 draw against Sierra Leone, in a double-legged encounter when qualifiers resume in September.
