Nigeria make amends with a win against the Central African Republic.

Super Eagles of Nigeria now have nine points from four games in the qualifiers

The Super Eagles of Nigeria on Sunday, October 10, 2021, exerted revenge on the Central African Republic with a 2-0 win in a 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier in Doula, Cameroon.

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.

That was his first goal 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.
