Nigeria 10 Sao Tome and Principe 0: Osimhen scores four goals in the Falcons and True Parrots Team’s thrashing.



On four occasions, the Napoli striker was on target as the Super Eagles blew aside the Central African country on Monday afternoon.

With a spectacular 10-0 thrashing of Sao Tome and Principe on Monday afternoon, Nigeria improved their hopes of qualifying for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.At the Stade Adrar in Morocco, Victor Osimhen’s four goals, Terem Moffi’s brace, and goals from Moses Simon, Peter Etebo, Ademola Lookman, and Ahmed Musa completed the rout.

The hosts came into the game looking to get back on track after losing 5-1 to Guinea-Bissau in their first Group A match on June 9. The Super Eagles, on the other hand, were victorious after putting up a remarkable attacking performance against the Falcons and the True Patriots.The West Africans started the eight-goal thriller on a high note, dominating ball possession but unable to find their attacking rhythm.

Nonetheless, the Napoli star scored the game’s first goal after heading Simon’s cross past goalie Anastacio Braganca.Moffi’s first international goal gave Nigeria a three-goal lead two minutes before the halftime break in a goal-filled first half.

Osimehen set him up after sprinting through Sao Tome’s goal area, and the France-based striker cut Ivonaldo before blasting past a stranded Braganca.Despite their commanding advantage, the Super Eagles continued to press for more goals, and Lookman provided the final pass in the 48th minute.

Five minutes before the hour mark, Etebo, who is based in England, whipped in a superb free-kick that was unstoppable by the goalkeeper.Five minutes later, Moffi completed his hat trick by tapping home a cross from Zaidu Sanusi.In the 21st minute, Osimhen thought he had doubled the Super Eagles’ lead, but referee Osiase Koto judged him offside.

Jose Peseiro’s side scored their second goal seven minutes later, after man-of-the-match Osimhen set up Nantes’ Moses from close range. Nigeria now leads Group A with six points from two games, while the Central Africans are still without a point.In September, the Super Eagles face Guinea-Bissau in their next match.
