Nigeria set a national record by trouncing Sao Tome and Principe 10-0 in African Cup qualifying on Monday, spurred on by four goals from striker Victor Osimhen.

The victory was Nigeria's biggest in international soccer, surpassing a 10-1 win over Benin, which was then called Dahomey, in 1959.

Osimhen put Nigeria on its way against Sao Tome and Principe with the opener in the ninth minute and scored his fourth in the 84th minute to make it 9-0. Emmanuel Dennis netted a penalty in injury time for Nigeria's 10th. Terem Moffi scored twice and Moses Simon, Oghenekaro Etebo and Ademola Lookman were the other goal-scorers.

The game was played in Agadir, Morocco. Read more.
