AFCON 2019 QUALIFYING: SUPER EAGLES KNOCK DOWN THE MEDITERRANEAN KNIGHTS

Nigeria’s Super Eagles have shot themselves within qualifying range of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations as they moved from the third position on the log to the second position.

They did it in grand style, pulling down the initial table toppers, Mediterranean Knights of Libya to the third position after a sweet 4-0 win in Uyo on Saturday.

In the rundown to the encounter, the Libyans have maintained a five match unbeaten run which was terminated by the Super Eagles.

The Nigerian side now have six points to trail South Africa who have seven points.

Odion Ighalo did the yeoman job with his hat-trick before Samuel Kalu scored the fourth goal.

The reverse fixture will hold on Tuesday in Tunisia.
