AFCON qualifier: Sierra Leone stage comeback to draw Eagles 4-4

Leone Stars of Sierra Leone on Friday evening came back from 4-0 down to draw 4-4 against the Super Eagles of Nigeria at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin City.

Immediately after Kamara’s big miss, Nigeria doubled their advantage through Osimhen who poked in Zaidu Sanusi’s delightful low cross in the 22nd minute.

Iwobi grabbed his second goal of the game and the third for Nigeria of the game in the 27th minute curling in a shot from 30 yards after strings from crisp passes between Musa and Osimhen.

Chukwueze made it 4-0 two minutes later when he latched on to a flick pass from Osimhen and raced through on goal beating his marker before scoring.

Quame Quee reduced the deficit for the Leone Stars in the 41st. Kamara robbed Chukwueze of the ball in the midfield and played a perfect pass for Quee to score. The strike means the Eagles have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last five games.
