The Super Eagles of Nigeria defeated Leone Stars of Sierra Leone 2-1 at the MKO Abiola National Stadium, Abuja in their 2023 Africa Cup of Nations encounter.

The fans were absent in a match played on Thursday as a result of the one-match ban placed on the country by the world football–governing body, FIFA, over the fracas that followed the end of the 2022 FIFA World Cup playoff round against the Black Stars of Ghana in March.

In the first game of the 2023 AFCON, Alex Iwobi and Victor Osimhen scored for Nigeria while J. Morsay scored for the Leone Stars.

The Nigeria will tackle ‘The Falcons and True Parrots’of São Tomé and Príncipe at the 45,000 –capacity Grand Stade de Agadir in southern Morocco in four days time.
