Musa, Iheanacho’s Goals Sink Togo


The Super Eagles of Nigeria wrapped their friendly trip to France in style with a 3-0 demolition of Togo on Thursday.

Ahmed Musa scored twice and Kelchi Iheanacho grabbed a third as the Eagles put daylight between them and their West African rivals before half-time at the Stade Municipal in Paris.

Musa slotted past goalkeeper Fatao Alhassani as early as the third minute, after a marvelous job by English FA Cup champion Arsenal FC’s Alex Iwobi.

Iwobi also provided the assist for the second goal by Musa 15 minutes later.

The Eagles dominated to near –embarrassing degree against the fellow West Africans, who featured at the Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon earlier in the year.

The victory means the three –time African champions remain unbeaten in all their eight matches over the past one year, winning six of those and scoring 15 goals while conceding only five.

The triumph also came on a day that Nigeria moved two steps up in the monthly FIFA ranking to 38th and 4th in Africa.
