Posted by

Nigeria qualified for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations by beating Sao Tome and Principe 6-0 on Sunday.

The Super Eagles had already secured their spot in the competition for the following year.

Yet the three-time African champions were in no mood to rest on their laurels, and they jumped on the visitors almost on.

Victor Osimhen and Ademola Lookman scored for Nigeria to give them a 2-0 lead at halftime.

Before Osimhen finished up his hat trick, Nottingham Forest’s Taiwo Awoniyi kept scoring in the second half. At the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, Samuel Chukwueze scored in stoppage time.

With 15 points, the Eagles will win Group A.
