Super Eagles Kick Off AFCON 2023 Qualifying Series With Victory

Nigeria defeated Sierra Leone 2-1 in the first fixture of their Africa Cup of Nations qualifying series on Thursday evening.

The Super Eagles returned to the MKO Abiola Stadium in Abuja for the first time, since the disastrous 1-1 draw with Ghana in March, which saw the three-time African champions miss out on the 2022 World Cup.

However, the game was played without fans, following FIFA’s ban for crowd trouble.

Jonathan Morsay opened scoring for the visitors, before Nigeria replied with goals from Alex Iwobi and Victor Osimhen.

It is the first win for new handler, Jose Peseiro, who lost in two friendly matches for Mexico and Ecuador.

The Eagles play Sao Tome and Principe next.
