Lesotho 2-4 Nigeria: Osimhen brace seals away victory for Super Eagles

Nigeria continued its 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualification process with another victory on Sunday, thanks to a brace from Victor Osimhen in their 4-2 win over Lesotho.

Host Lesotho took an 11th minute lead though Nkoto much to the delight the home fans but Everton forward Alex Iwobi drew Nigeria level in the 26th minute.

Samuel Chukwueze put Nigeria ahead eight minutes later as the visitors took a 2-1 lead heading into the half time break.

After the break, Osimhen, who provided assist for Nigeria's first two goals, finally found the back of the net in the 75th minute before completing his brace ten minutes later.

Chidozie Awaziem erroneously scored an own goal in the 90th minute to give the home side some hope but it did little to prevent Nigeria from picking the entire points. 

The Super Eagles stay top of Group L with six points following a 2-1 victory over Benin in their first game on Wednesday.
