Three goals from Odion Ighalo and one from Samuel Kalu gave the Super Eagles a 4-0 win over Libya in a 2019 AFCON Qualifier in Uyo, and helped coach Gernot Rohr’s team move into second place in Group E.

The Eagles are now with six points from three matches, one point behind South Africa who earlier in the day beat visiting Seychelles in Johannesburg.

Nigeria will play Libya in the return leg in Tunis on Tuesday.
