AFCON U-23Qualifier: Osihmen's Hat-Trick Sinks Libya

Victor Osimhen netted a hat-trick as Nigeria’s U-23 Eagles overturned a two-goal deficit by defeating Libya 4-0 on Monday in the reverse fixture of their Africa Cup of Nations qualifier to advance with a 4-2 win on aggregate.

The Nigerians needed a three-goal margin of win after losing 2-0 to the north Africans in the first leg in Tunisia, where Libya’s adopted home ground is situated.

And Osimhen, who joined the team from the Super Eagles camp, hit the ground running with a superlative outing that saw Nigeria recover from their loss in the first leg.
