The Super Eagles have qualified for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) after defeating Sierra Leone 3-2 at the Samuel Kanyon Doe Stadium in Monrovia, Liberia, on Sunday evening.
A stoppage-time tap-in from Kelechi Iheanacho was the most important goal in a match where the Super Eagles surrendered a two-goal lead.
Shortly, the early pressure paid for Nigeria as Osimhen pounced on a long ball and executed a perfect lob over the onrushing Sesay, who watched as the strike sailed into the empty net.
The Napoli striker doubled the lead in the 32nd minute after he was sent through on goal by a cute pass by Joe Aribo.
The Super Eagles who top Group A with 12 points from five games are through to the 2023 Afcon despite having to play their last match on home soil against Sao Tome and Principe.
