You nearly got the impression it was two distinct squads.
The Central African Republic pulled off one of the biggest upsets in African football history on Thursday.
At the Teslim Balogun Stadium in Lagos, the Wild Beasts defeated the Super Eagles 1-0. It’s been described as a smash-and-grab by some. That was far from the case.
They came prepared with a strategy and caught Gernot Rohr’s team off guard in the final stages of the game.
Nigeria flew out for the rematch in search of vengeance.
They were able to obtain it.
This time, Rohr devised a strategy that included playing three at the back. The Eagles were able to peg CAR back in Douala as a result of their strategy.
Thanks to Leon Balogun and Victor Osimhen, the three-time African champions not only dominated the game but also held a two-goal advantage at halftime.
After the interval, it could have been three. After beating the CAR goalkeeper, Osimhen couldn’t get the ball past a defender on the line for whatever reason.
Nigeria now leads Cape Verde Islands by two points in Group C, after the latter defeated Liberia in Mindelo on Sunday.
Next month, we’ll return to World Cup qualifying. Nigeria will visit Liberia on November 13, while Cape Verde will welcome the Central African Republic.
There isn’t much space for error and no room for mistakes. By now, Rohr should be aware of the situation. It’s still possible.
