Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously had reported that Nigeria picked up their first three point of the Cameroon 2019 AFCON qualifier with a 3-0 win over Seychelles.

Gernot Rohr's men produced a dominant display from the blast of the whistle as the Nigerian side attacked from all corners of the field.

It did not take long before the Super Eagles World Cup hero Ahmed Musa shot Nigeria into the lead with a powerful shot that hit the post and then the keeper before the ball went into the back of the net to make it 1-0 for Nigeria.

Chigozie doubled the advantage for Nigeria as Kelechi Iheanacho's free kick hit the upright before the 21-year-old defender had an easy tap-in to make it 2-0.

Nigeria's third goal came in the second half after the Eagles best player of the match Samuel Kalu was fouled in the box.

The resulting spot-kick was converted by Odion Igahlo with the coolest of finishes as Nigeria got back to winning ways after losing their first match to South Africa.
