Nigeria Defeats Seychelles, Wins Group E

The Super Eagles ended their 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers campaign on a winning note defeating Seychelles 3-1 at the Stephen Keshi Stadium in Asaba Delta State on Friday.

Odion Ighalo scored to give Nigeria the lead three minutes after the half hour mark, but Melaine Rody drew Seychelles level eight minutes later.

Henry Onyekuru, making his first official start for the Super Eagles, restored Nigeria’s lead with a cool header seven minutes into the second half.

Super sub Moses Simon sealed the win for the Eagles after scoring the 3rd goal.

That victory puts Nigeria as group E winners with 13 points from 6 games
