Nigeria vs Cape Verde: Super Eagles Beat Hosts To Maintain Group C Lead In World Cup Qualifiers [Table]

Nigeria’s Super Eagles on Tuesday in Mindelo beat hosts Cape Verde 2-1 to maintain their lead in Group C of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

The Nigerian senior male football team only took some minutes to absorb the shock of falling behind to the hosts.

Dylan Tavares scored in the 19th minute of the Match Day 2 fixture at the Estádio Municipal Adérito Sena before the Super Eagles rallied back.

Napoli forward Victor Osimhen drew the Super Eagles level in the 29th minute, before an own goal by Kenny Santos in the 75th minute handed Nigeria the win.

Following Friday’s 2-0 win over Liberia’s Lone Star in Lagos, the Super Eagles now have the maximum points from two matches.

Their next match in the qualifiers comes up in October against the Central African Republic (CAR).

Below is the group’s current standings, after two matches each by the four teams:
