Sports Africa: Super Eagles round off 2019 AFCON qualifiers with 3-1 victory

The Super Eagles of Nigeria
The Super Eagles of Nigeria, on Friday, defeated Seychelles 3-1, in their final game of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying series.
The Nigeria side had already qualified for the tournament which will be staged in Egypt before the match, following a 1-1 draw against the Bafana Bafana of South Africa in November.

Gernot Rohr’s men found it tough to break down Seychelles in the first half, before Odion Ighalo opened scoring from the penalty spot.

However, Rody Melanie stunned home fans, latching onto Francis Uzoho’s blunder to make it 1-1 before the break.

Shocking statement: The military invaded the state collation center ostensibly to protect the interest of a faction of APC that had no candidate in the election

Early in the second half, Henry Onyekuru headed Nigeria back in the lead, converting Jamiliu Collins’ cross. Moses Simon climbed off the bench to add a third.

The Super Eagles will now take on Egypt in an international friendly on Tuesday, at the same venue.
