Bayer Leverkusen have hailed their striker, Victor Boniface, following his debut for Nigeria in the 6-0 win over Sao Tome and Principe in Super Eagles’ last Group A game of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying series, Completesports.com reports.

The Jose Peseiro-led team walloped Sao Tome and Principe 6-0 on Sunday, September 10 at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium, Uyo.

Boniface (12) celebrates with Samuel Chukwueze who utilized his assist for Nigeria’s 6th goal in the 6-0 win against the True Parrots of Sao Tome and Principe in Uyo.

Osimhen dispatched a penalty kick coolly in the 70th minute to grab his brace and make it 4-0. He finally got his hat trick with a tap in from close range after being teed up by substitute Samuel Chukwueze.

Chukwueze scored yet another goal for Nigeria in the encounter to make it 6-0 off a Boniface assist.

Bayer Leverkusen took to their official X (formerly Twitter) platform to herald their top striker.
