Odion Ighalo scored his first Super Eagles hat-trick as Nigeria walloped Libya 4-0 in their 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in Uyo on Saturday.
Goals from Changchun Yatai striker in the 4th, 58th and 69th respectively gave Nigeria a convincing lead.
Samuel Kalu netted a fourth for the Nigerians in the 90th minute, curling home an unstoppable right-footed shot from the edge of the area to cap a perfect day for the Super Eagles.
As a result, Nigeria now second in Group E with six points from three matches, a point behind new leaders South Africa, who earlier thrashed Seychelles 6-0.
Both Nigeria and Libya will do battle again in the reverse fixture in Sfax, Tunisia, on Tuesday.
