Next up for Nigeria is a home game against the Central African Republic on October 9th with Cape Verde heading to Liberia.
Many thanks for tuning in today and we look forward to catching up with you all next month for the NGA-CAR match.
Tavares opened the scoring for the home side on the 19th minute with Napoli's Osimhen drawing Nigeria level ten minutes later after a defensive slip-up. The game was settled in the 76th minute when Kenny Santos drove a back pass into his own net with stopper Vozinha stranded.
Not the most impressive display we've seen from Nigeria but Gernot Rohr won't mind with the Super Eagles securing the all important three points which helps the West African side in their quest to advance to the final stage of the qualifying process in securing the all important ticket to the Qatar World Cup.
