Ahmed Musa who captained the Super Eagles, recorded a good a start for his leadership against the pirates of Seychelles .

The former Leicester City forward was the first to open the gate way of goals before Awazie and Igalo followed suit by making it 3-0 against the pirates.

The newly signed Al-Nassr of Saudi Arabia player went to say that the most important thing was the three points gotten.

Goal scorer Ahmed Musa also said the road to winning was most crucial to them as a stronger team.

We are pleased with our first points in this group stage of the AFCON qualifiers.

We started strongly but it got a bit difficult for us in the second half because it was not easy playing on the artificial turf and as well their weather condition.

Though the pirates team gave a good account of themselves, by being relentless in their effort to make it through but they were no match for the Eagles he concluded.
