The Super Eagles of Nigeria on Friday even were forced to to settle for a disappointing 4-4 draw after leading with a 3 goal deficit in their Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match on Friday at the new Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin City, Edo State.

The Super Eagles were leading their West African neighbours Sierra Leone with a 4-1 scoreline in the opening half-hour of Friday’s tie before they blew the lead and ended up with a 4-4 draw.

It was Alex Iwobi that opened the flood gates of goals in the 4th minute before Victor Osimhen doubled the lead.

The Everton midfielder made it 3-0 in the 27th minute and then Samuel Chukwueze increase the tally three minutes afterward.

When Kwame Quee reduced the deficit to 4-1 late in the first half, many saw it just as a face-saving goal but it turned out to be crucial as it gave the visitors the push for a revival in the second half.

In the second half, substitutes Al-Hadji Kamara and Mustapha Bundu turned the tables as the duo combined to get the three goals that saw the Leone Stars force a 4-4 draw.

The game saw Napoli frontman Victor Osihmen getting injured. The return leg is on Monday in Sierra Leone.
