Nigeria’s Super Eagles recorded their biggest ever win in a football match as they took Sao Tome e Principe apart for a 10-0 win in the second game of their 2023 Nations Cup qualifiers on Monday.
Victor Osimhen scored four times to take his tally to 13 goals for Nigeria in only 22 games.
Before the game, which was played in Morocco,
Nigeria’s biggest win came in November 1959 when they demolished Dahomey (Benin Republic) 10 – 1 in Lagos.
Osimhen, Moses Simon and Terem Moffi put Nigeria 3-0 up in the first half. By the 60th minute, Jose Peseiro’s men were already 6-0 up, courtesy of strikes from Etebo, Moffi and Osimhen.
Ademola Lookman would score his first for Nigeria to stretch the lead before another brace from Napoli forward Osimhen.
Emmanuel Dennis then secured the record ten from the penalty spot in stoppage time to seal a commanding victory.
Nigeria are top of their qualifying group with two wins from two games.
They had beaten Sierra Leone 2-1 in their opening game and will face Guinea Bissua when qualifying action resumes in August.
