Nigeria vs Cape Verde: Super Eagles for next phase of 2022 World Cup qualifiers

Super Eagles vs CAR

Nigeria have clinched one of the 10 slots in the African qualifying zone for the 2022 World Cup, following a 1-1 draw with Cape Verde on Tuesday evening.

Victor Osimhen opened scoring for the Super Eagles in the first minute of the encounter played at the Teslim Balogun Stadium in Lagos.

However, the visitors were level within five minutes, thanks to Stopira.

Gernot Rohr’s men had chances to kill off the game, but failed to take it, because of poor finishing and last-minute clearance.

Nigeria will now join the likes of Senegal, Morocco, Egypt, Ghana, Mali, and the Democratic Republic of Congo in the play-offs.

They will face each other for five tickets available for African nations at Qatar 2022.
