The 2022 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) qualifiers resumed this month with countries involved in matchday three and four action across the continent.

In one of the most memorable matches in recent years, Sierra Leone came from four goals down to hold Nigeria to a 4-4 draw at Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin City.

The Super Eagles scored all of their goals before the half-hour mark, but the Leone Stars found the back of the net on the cusp of half-time and added three more after the break to claim a deserving point away to the three-time champions.

Alex Iwobi and Al-Hadji Kamara netted a brace apiece for the two nations in a game that will live long in the memory of every player involved.

Nigeria could only manage a 0-0 draw in the reverse fixture in Freetown this week but remain top of Group L with two rounds of fixtures remaining.
