Nigeria 2-1 Sierra Leone LIVE! Osimhen goal – AFCON qualifier result, match stream and latest updates today

Alex Iwobi and Victor Osimhen helped Nigeria overcome an impressive Sierra Leone in their Africa Cup of Nations qualifier on Thursday.

While the hosts raced into an early lead following a goal from Jonathan Morsay and threatened to make matters worse by hitting the post minutes later, individual quality paid off.

Indeed, the Super Eagles hardly looked convincing on a pitch in terrible condition.

The slick attacking play that saw them heralded as early favourites in the early part of the AFCON tournament in January was not at all evident, with the big-name attackers failing to find eachother.

Still, Iwobi calmly stroked one home to restore parity before Osimhen powered in what proved to be a winner five minutes before half-time after good work from Moses Simon.

Eventually, the Super Eagles got there.
