Lesotho Draws Nigeria At Home In World Cup Qualifiers

The match between Nigeria’s Super Eagles and the Minnows of Lesotho ended in a 1:1 draw.

Motlomelo Mkwanazi gave Lesotho, ranked 153rd in the world – 113 places below Nigeria, a shock lead with a 56th-minute goal from a corner.

West Brom centre-back Semi Ajayi powerfully headed in Kelechi Iheanacho’s corner to level 11 minutes later but the Super Eagles could not find a winner in their Group C opener in a rainy Uyo.

Jose Peseiro’s side had dominated the first half but paid for their profligacy as Iheanacho saw a free-kick saved, Nottingham Forest striker Taiwo Awoniyi failed to capitalise on a promising cut-back and Ademola Lookman had a low shot across goal saved.
