Osimhen nets as Nigeria are held by Equatorial Guinea

 

Nigeria's forward #9 Victor Osimhen heads the ball during the Africa Cup of Nations (CAN) 2024 group A football match between Nigeria and Equatorial Guinea at the Alassane Ouattara Stadium in Ebimpe, Abidjan, on January 14, 2024. 

Victor Osimhen's quick-fire equaliser spared Nigeria a shock defeat against Equatorial Guinea in their opening game of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

Osimhen nodded in a minute after Iban Salvador's opener for the underdogs.

Salvador's classy first-half finish was his side's only attempt on target and briefly threatened a significant upset in the second game of the tournament.

Jesus Owono made several second-half saves to deny the Super Eagles, while Osimhen missed after breaking clear.
