AFCON qualifiers: Nigeria wins, South Africa rebound over Sudan

Nigeria easily handled Lesotho in Africa Cup of Nations group qualifying.

Nigeria's in-form forward Victor Osimhen struck twice as they came from a goal down to beat minnows Lesotho 4-2 in their 2021 Africa Cup of Nations Group L qualifier in Maseru on Sunday.

Less than four months have passed since Baghdad Bounedjah's bizarre, looping second-minute effort secured the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations title for Algeria, yet the continent's major sides are resuming hostilities.

In October, the eight lowest-ranked nations in Africa played off for the privilege of rubbing shoulders with the big boys, but Wednesday's group stage openers mark the proper kickoff for the Cameroon 2021 campaign.

Africans Abroad: Salah and Mane star for Reds, Mothiba finds the net

Lebo Mothiba ended his five-and-a-half-month wait for a goal by scoring twice in Strasbourg's Ligue 1 victory over Nimes last weekend, while both Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane starred as Liverpool defeated Manchester City in a potentially decisive clash at the top of the English Premier League.

South Africa's Mothiba hadn't scored since May when he took to the field at La Meinau on Saturday, enduring a goalless stint with South Africa at the Africa Cup of Nations before a sluggish start to the season...
