The Super Eagles of Nigeria redeemed their image on Sunday by securing a 2-0 victory over the Central Africa Republic in Douala, Cameroon.
Goals from Leon Balogun and Victor Osimhen secured the maximum three points for Gernot Rohr’s men.
CAR, ranked 123rd globally, last Thursday shocked Nigeria by snatching a 1-0 victory in the first leg at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos.
The Nigerian side attracted criticisms from football lovers in the country following the defeat.
However, Sunday’s victory has pushed the Super Eagles to nine points as they maintain the top spot in Group C.
Rohr’s men have now taken a massive step towards qualification for the knockout and final phase of qualification for Qatar 2022.
