The Super Eagles of Nigeria Trashed Sao Tome and Principe 10 goals to nothing to clinched their second win of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers on Monday afternoon.

The Eagles who had kicked off their qualifying campaign with a 2-1 win over Sierra Leone last Thursday, have now boosted their chances of securing a ticket to the finals with a second victory.

Sao Tome and Principe had no shot on target as they lost the game despite having the ball 34 percent of the time.

It was a huge win for Peseiro, who had just joined the Nigeria national team as head coach in May following the stepping down of interim boss Austin Eguavoen in April.

The Super Eagles will be facing Guinea-Bissau in the matchday three of the qualifiers. The 2023 AFCON is billed to hold in Cote d’Ivoire between 23 June and 23 July, next year.
