Super Eagles suffer shock defeat to Central African Republic

Nigeria lost 1-0 to Central African Republic on Thursday in a 2022 World Cup qualifying match.

Gernot Rohr’s men failed to break down the Wild Beasts’ resolute defence at the Teslim Balogun Stadium.

They had no incisive attempt to goal and were shocked in the 90th minute, as Karl Namnganda netted the winner.

Earlier on Thursday, Cape Verde Islands fought back from behind to defeat Liberia 2-1 at the Ohene Djan Sports Stadium, Accra.

They are level on four points with CAR while Liberia dropped to the bottom with three points.

Nigeria will continue their journey to Qatar 2022 with a trip to Douala for their return fixture against the Central African Republic on Sunday.
