Former Super Eagles winger, Finidi George, has congratulated the Super Eagles on their 3-0 win over Seychelles in Saturday’s 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying game at the Stade Linite, Victoria.
Stand-in skipper, Ahmed Musa broke the deadlock in the 15th minute when he unleashed a powerful shot from outside the penalty area that hit the crossbar and went in off Seychelles goalkeeper Dave Mussard.
Chidozie Awaziem added the second in the 34th minute slamming the ball home after Kelechi Iheanacho free kick came off the upright, while Odion Ighalo got the third from spot-kick in the 56th minute after debutant Samuel Kalu was fouled in the box.
“Congrats Super Eagles…Keep soaring,” Finidi wrote on Twitter.
Also, Rotherham United defender, Semi Ajayi, has said that he was honoured to make his international debut for Nigeria in Saturday’s 2019 AFCON qualifier clash against Seychelles in Victoria.
Ajayi, who once played for English Premier League club, Arsenal, came in for the injured Chidozie Awaziem in the 74th minute of the encounter.
He came close to grabbing an assist late in the game with fellow substitute Henry Onyekuru nearly hitting the target from his inch perfect cross.
“Was an honour to make my international debut against Seychelles on Saturday.
“Humbled to finally represent my country at the highest level and even more grateful to mark it with a win and clean sheet.
“Thank you God#SuperEagles,” Ajayi tweeted on his Twitter handle on Sunday.
