by | Sep 11, 2023 | African News, Football Africa, Sport News | 0 comments

Napoli’s hitman Victor Osimhen bagged a hat-trick as Nigeria wrapped up their TotalEnergies Africa Cup of Nations qualifying campaign with a 6-0 thrashing over Sao Tome on Sunday.

As a result, the Super Eagles sealed their place at the top of Group A with 15 points, scoring 22 goals in the six matches of the group.

The Super Eagles proved too strong for São Tomé and Príncipe as Victor Osimhen scored the opener in the 13th minute.

He completed his hat trick with goals in the 69th and 79th minute, respectively, to end as the qualifier’s top scorer with ten (10) goals. 

Ademola Lookman added a second with a neat finish before Osimhen netted a penalty after the break to put the result beyond doubt before Taiwo Awoniyi and Samuel Chukwueze also got in on the act as Nigeria ran riot.

Group A’s second-best team, Guinea-Bissua’s Djurtus Wild Dogs, will host Sierra Leone on Monday at the Estádio 24 de Setembro to wrap up the qualifiers.
