It was a very difficult game for the Super Eagles to navigate, but they conquered Sierra Leone 2-1 at the Abuja National Stadium on Thursday night.
The visitors competed throughout the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) Qualifiers Group A game and deserved at least a point.
Goals from Alex Iwobi and Victor Osimhen settled the matter for Jose Peseiro’s team.
After another brilliant display in the colours of the three-time African champions, Napoli poser boy Victor Osimhen expressed joy with the team spirit of Eagles.
He wrote via Instagram: “Great team spirit, Up Next Sao Tome.”
Super Eagles will face Sao Tome and Principe in Morocco on Monday.
