World Cup Qualifier: Iheanacho's Goals Down Liberia In Lagos

By Ibrahim Taiwo, The Nigerian Voice Sports

The Super Eagles of Nigeria recorded a 2-0 win over Liberia at the Teslim Balogun Stadium in Lagos courtesy of a brace from Leicester City forward, Kelechi Iheanacho.

Iheanacho scored the first goal in the 22nd minute after receiving a pass from Alex Iwobi to drill home a low drive which beat Liberian goalkeeper at his near post.

Victor Osimhen came close to doubling Nigeria's lead but his effort failed to trouble the visitors' goalkeeper.

Iheanacho scored his second of the game just before halftime to give the Super Eagles a comfortable first-half lead.

Osimhen saw his header saved by the Liberian goalkeeper on the hour mark before making way for Paul Onuachu.

Ahmed Musa also made his 99th appearance for the Super Eagles when he replaced Kelechi Iheanacho.

Nigeria's next match is against Cape Verde in Mindelo on Tuesday.
