Iheanacho the hero as Super Eagles beat Liberia in World Cup Qualifier!

Super Eagles of Nigeria began their 2022 World Cup qualifier with a win over Liberia at the Teslim Balogun Stadium.

Kelechi Iheanacho’s brace in the first half secured all three points for the team as they top group C with three points, two goals, and a clean sheet.


The Leicester City forward could have scored his first hat trick for the team but failed to place his header towards goal in the second half.

Iheanacho’s near-post finish and his brilliant second goal secured his 11th international goal for the Super Eagles.

While the Super Eagles were dominant in the first half, lackluster is a mild way of describing their second-half performance as they allowed the Liberians acres of spaces on the pitch.

The Super Eagles will look to secure a win away from home without their UK-based players when they take on Cape Verde away from home on Tuesday.
