The Scorpions of Lesotho wasted no time to announce their intent as the team struck first in the 11th minute through Masoabi Nkoto that sent the home fans into a frenzy.
Despite Lesotho’s goal, Gernot Rohr’s men continued to pile more pressure on their defense and eventually got rewarded for their patience as Alex Iwobi leveled parity for Nigeria in the 26th minute.
Twelve minutes later, the Eagles extended their lead as Samuel Chukwueze, who was a thorn in the flesh of Lesotho smashed home the second goal.
In the 76th minute, Victor Osimhen eventually crowned his efforts with a goal before earning a brace with a quality finish in the 85th minute to seal the victory for Nigeria.
Lesotho however, scored another goal in the 90th minute via an own goal from Awaziem.
