Obinna Nsofor snatched two second half goals to help ensure a comfortable 3-0 win for Nigeria over Kenya in their World Cup African zone Group B qualifier in Abuja on Sunday.
The Inter Milan forward, who saw little league action this
season, converted a 72nd minute penalty and then hit home a
thundering shot five minutes later.
The Super Eagles started the game with a goal inside the
opening two minutes as Ike Uche took advantage of a defensive
slip to run through the defence and expertly finish.
But Kenya used superior physical strength to set up several
chances to get back into the game, notably from pacey striker
Twice they had an open goal yawning in front of them but
failed to take the opportunity.
Nigeria moved to four points from their first two games in
the group, two behind leaders Tunisia who beat Mozambique 2-0 on
Saturday. Nigeria are away to Tunisia on June 20.
