Nigeria beat Seychelles 3-0

Goals from Ahmed Musa, Chidozie Awaziem and Odion Ighalo ensured Nigeria got their 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualification campaign back on track with a 3-0 away win against Seychelles on Saturday.

Stand-in captain Musa set the ball rolling in the 15th minute with his 16th international goal, a beautiful left-footed scorcher which came back off the post and goalkeeper Dave Mussard, before settling in the back of the net.

Odion Ighalo converted a penalty in the 57th minute to make it three after Samuel Kalu was brought down.

Next up for Nigeria in Group E is a home fixture against Libya on 10 October, while Seychelles are away to South Africa on the same day.
