NGA 6-0 STP: Best players for the Super Eagles as Nigeria finish as group winners

The Super Eagles started the game with a 4-2-2 formation as Osimhen and Taiwo Awoniyi were given the opportunity to start both as striking pairs.

The game started underway as Nigeria dominated proceedings from the on set, limiting the Sao Tome and Principe team to the half way line, and it wasn’t too long as the team found the net as through their star man Victor Osimhen, who got on the end of a cross and headed into the net to ensure the Super Eagles were on top.

It wasn’t too long that Atalanta winger, Ademola Lookman made it 2-0 through neat strike at the edge of the box.

Kelechi Iheanacho had the ball in the net in the first half through a neat 1-2 passing in the box, but the goal was judged to be offside.

Taiwo Awoniyi made the goal 3-0 as the Nottingham Forest striker scored a sublime goal as he cheated downwards to score the third goal.
