Super Eagles of Nigeria on Tuesday evening, March 30, rounded up their qualifiers for the 2022 African Cup of Nations in Cameroon with an emphatic 3-0 win over Lesotho.
Players of the three-time African champions produced superb performance in this game with the likes of Victor Osimhen, Etebo and Paul Onuachu getting the goals for the Super Eagles.
Lesotho started the match impressively with their forwards making some dangerous run, but Super Eagles goalkeeper Francis Uzoho was superb in his department.
Everton forward Alex Iwobi had the chance to score the first goal for Nigeria in the fifth minute after being set up by Iheanacho, but he was unable to find the back of the net.
And after the encounter, Paul Onuachu got praises from Nigerians and fans who were impressed with him scoring his second goal for Super Eagles in second game.
Fans claimed that the Genk striker has now justified his inclusion in the team by coach Gernot Rohr.
See some reactions below.
Gernot Rohr's men had already qualified for the tournament but played for pride as the Nigerian national team return to Lagos after more than two decades.
Nigeria's first chance of the game came in the 8th minute when Samuel Chukwueze advanced Oghenekaro Etebo.
The Galatasaray man delivered a low rocket which left goalkeeper Sekhoane Moerane sprawling.
The Super Eagles took the lead in the 23rd minute through Napoli man Victor Osimhen who took advantage of a slack defense before flicking the ball into the net. 1-0.
Lesotho put the ball into Nigeria's net through Marabe who scored, but referee signalled offside.
And five minutes into the second-half, Osimhen got the better Basia Makepe and then set up Oghenekaro Etebo who poked home leaving goalkeeper Sekhoane Moerane hapless in goal. 2-0.
The Eagles would have grabbed yet another goal moments later after the rampaging Chukwueze ghosted past his man, set himself up before rifling his shot over the bar.
