A brace from in form striker Odion Ighalo and one goal from captain Ahmed Musa was enough for Nigeria to get all three points against a well disciplined Libyan national team in the second leg of the Africa Cup of Nations double header in Sfax and go top of group E on 9 points ahead of South Africa, Libya and Seychelles.
The Mediterranean knights came from two goals down to equal the Eagles at 2 – 2 before striker Odion Ighalo put the game to rest late in the match to end at 3 – 2.
Former Nigerian international Victor Ikpeba after the match has called on Nigerian football fans to respect Ighalo who he believes have come of age in the Eagles and is now delivering the goods.
The former Monaco of France forward believes that having score five goals in two back to back matches for the Eagles his critics need to cut him some slack and constructively praise his impute in the team.
Ighalo has scored 6 goals for the Eagles at the ongoing 2019 AFCON qualifiers the highest so far for the Super Eagles.
