Nigeria hosted CAR at the Teslim Balogun Stadium in their third group game of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

The first half was a bore-fest with both side struggling to create anything.

The Super Eagles got better in the second half but failed to score before the visitors scored a late goal to stun their more prolific hosts.

Kal Namnganda snuck past the central defence pairing of William Troost-Ekong and Leon Balogun to finish past Francis Uzoho.

The Super Eagles still lead Group C of the African qualifiers with six points with Cape Verde and CAR following with four points.

Liberia are bottom with three points.
