Super Eagles win in AFCON 2019 qualifier

Super Eagles players have reacted to the 2-0 win against Iceland in their second group D game of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, played on Friday, June 22.

The Super Eagles of Nigeria did just enough to beat Seychelles 3-0 in the Matchday two fixture of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier.

Ahmed Musa gave Nigeria the lead in the 15th minute before Chidozie Awaziem added another goal in the first half. Odion Ighalo netted from the spot in the second half to sealed the win for Nigeria.

After losing their first game of the qualifiers, the Super Eagles were looking to get their campaign back on track with a win against Seychelles.

Nigeria had the better moments and got their reward after Musa's fierce left-foot effort hit the post but bounced off the goalkeeper into the net.
Awaziem doubled the lead a few minutes later, pouncing on a ball to blast into the net after a Kelechi Iheanacho freekick had hit the post.
