Nigeria defeats C.A.R by 2-0 to top the group


Leon Balogun and Victor Osimhen were on score sheet as the Super Eagles beat the Central African Republic on Sunday to avenge their humiliating loss to the Les Fauves in the reverse fixture of the 2022 World Cup qualifier. 

The Rangers defender scored in the 32nd minute of the encounter to break the deadlock in the clash in Douala, Cameroon.

He latched on to a cross to beat the CAR goalkeeper at his near post before Osimhen got the second goal just before the half-time break.

Earlier, Nigeria super eagles had lost the first leg of the encounter 1-0 in front of a home crowd in Lagos State but maintained the lead in Group C of the qualification series.

Victory in Douala on Sunday gave the Africa giant a massive step towards qualification for the knockout and final phase of qualification for Qatar 2022.

Nigeria now top the group with nine points from four games.
