Seychelles 0 – Nigeria 3
This weekend in Africa, nations are competing in 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
One of those matches saw Nigeria beat the Seychelles 3-0.
Former Leicester City striker Ahmed Musa opened for Nigeria.
The Super Eagles doubled their lead through Chidozie Awaziem.
Former Watford forward Odion Ighalo wrapped up the win with a third from the penalty spot.
Seychelles, who are bottom of qualification Group E, will take on South Africa next on Thursday, September 13.
Seychelles goalie Dave Mussard ‘goes viral’
Despite losing, the Seychelles made headlines.
Specifically goalie Dave Mussard, who doesn’t look like the average international keeper.
Dave Mussard is 31-years-old. For his day job, Mussard is a pastry chef with Hotel Patatran on La Digue Island.
Cutting to the chase, Dave Mussard has become a social media hit on Saturday as he’s bigger than most footballers.
