Coach Jose Peseiro was pleased with his “focused” Nigerian side in the 10-0 win over Sao Tome and Principe, claiming his wards made the nation proud.
Nigeria were completely ruthless during the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) Qualifiers day 2 match in Adrar on Monday afternoon.
“We achieved our goal of points won, grew as a group and conquered a historical record, always based on fundamental values: team spirit and mutual help,” Jose Peseiro wrote via Social Media.

With the victory, Nigeria stay at the summit of Group A with six points and a healthy goal difference.
Sierra Leone forced Guinea-Bissau to a 2-2 draw in Freetown to pick up their first point of the qualifying campaign.
Guinea-Bissau, however, sit second behind the Super Eagles on four points, having humbled Sao Tome and Principe 5-1 on matchday one.
