Super Eagles of Nigeria wrapped up the 2023 African Cup of Nations qualifiers with a comfortable 6-0 victory against the Patriots of Sao Tome and Principe at Nest of Champions, Uyo, Akwa-Ibom state, on Sunday.

A hat-trick from Napoli striker, Victor Osimhen and a goal each from Ademola Lookman, Taiwo Awoniyi, and substitute, Samuel Chukwueze ensured the team finished top of Group A ahead of Guinea Bissau.

With the team already qualified for the AFCON next year in Ivory Coast, they needed just a point to clinch the group top spot. They however went a step further picking the maximum three points and also scoring a combined 16 goals in two legs against their opponents.

It didn’t take too long before the goals started rolling in. On 13 minutes, Osimhen got his first, rising highest to head home a corner from Lookman
