2022 Fifa World Cup Qualifier: Super Eagles Defeat Central African Republic 2-0

It was payback for the Super Eagles of Nigeria as they beat the Central African Republic 2-0 in a 2022 Fifa World Cup qualifier in Doula, Cameroon on Sunday.

The Super Eagles had suffered a shock 1-0 loss at home to the Central African Republic in a Group C game of the qualifiers on Thursday, October 7, but three days later, they got to make amends with a win.

Leon Balogun opened the scoring in the 29th minute, getting on a cross into the box for a one-time finish with his right foot. The goal was his first for Nigeria.

The Super Eagles dominated the game all through and got a deserved second just before halftime through Victor Osimhen, who was in the right place inside the box to finish off a cross from William Troost-Ekong.

Nigeria continue to top Group C with nine points from four games.
