CTA 0-2 NGR: Nigeria's Next Two Games & The Maximum Points Super Eagles Need To Qualify For 2022 WC

Nigeria’s Super Eagles shook off the disappointment of losing at home to Central African Republic on Thursday in the FIFA 2022 World Cup qualifiers, overturning the last result and getting their pound of flesh when both teams clashed in the return leg on Sunday. Nigeria secured all three points with a 2-0 victory to maintain their top spot in the table.

Goals from Glagow Rangers' defender Leon Balogun and Napoli striker Victor Osimhen in the 29' and 45+1' respectively were enough to earn Nigeria the third victory In the Group C.

However, Gernot Rohr's men will be facing Cape Verde as their next game, after which they will play Liberia last. Nigeria currently has 9 points in the competition and will be needing a maximum of 10 points to Qualify For The 2022 World Cup, that means the Falcons needs to draw or win either of their next two games against Cape Verde and Liberia in order to secure at least 1 point or more to qualify.

Nigeria won Cape Verde and Liberia in the First-Leg and the possibility of that happening again is actually higher.
