About three European clubs expressed their delight in seeing the Super Eagles thrash Libya by 4-0 in the 2019 African Nations Cup Qualifiers on Saturday.
Former Watford striker Odion Ighalo had extended his goalscoring form in the Chinese League to the national team with his sweet performance as he saw the back of the net three times, making it the first hattrick of his career.
The game was a delight to clubs including Arsenal, Chelsea and Bordeaux who all monitored the game that was played at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium in Uyo and they took to their social media platforms to hail their players and the win.
For the Stamford Bridge, they were glad Ola Aina made it from the bench to contribute to the big win by the Nigerian side.
Also, Arsenal could not hold it from celebrating the Naija boy who had his club side form extended to the Gernot Rohr team by giving an assist in the game.
Arsenal on their twitter handle stated that Iwobi set up Odion Ighalo for his second goal with an inch-perfect through pass.
It was same for Bordeaux who monitored Samuel Kanu’s performance and had it on record.
However, the clubs expect to see another good performance when the team converge to face same Libya in the return leg this week.
