Johnny Edward and ‘Tosin Oluwalowo

Nigeria played out a 4-4 draw against Sierra Leone in Friday’s 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin.

A brace from Alex Iwobi and strikes from Victor Osimhen and Samuel Chukwueze gave the Super Eagles a deserving lead after 29 minutes.

But in the second half, the Leones Stars fought back through strikes from Al-Hadji Kamara and strikes from Quame Quee and Rodney Strasser.

It was the first time the Eagles were conceding four goals under coach Gernot Rohr.

Despite the draw, the Eagles still lead Group L with seven points from three games while the Leone Stars now have two points from three games.
