Super Eagles will be hoping to consolidate on their brilliant start to the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers as the team face Cape Verde at the Estádio Municipal Adérito Sena, Mindelo on Tuesday.
Last week Friday, Nigeria defeated Liberia 2-0 at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos, thanks to Kelechi Iheanacho’s brace to send the team top of Group C.
On the other hand, Cape Verde played out a 1-1 draw against the Central Africa Republic (CAR) to share one point apiece.
The Super Eagles will approach the Blue Sharks game missing a handful of first-team regulars who distinguished themselves against Liberia but have departed for their United Kingdom-based clubs.
Head coach Gernot Rohr will be without Friday’s two-goal hero Kelechi Iheanacho, MVP Alex Iwobi, first-choice centre-backs Leon Balogun and William Troost-Ekong, Rangers ace Joe Aribo, Watford star Oghenekaro Etebo, and Leicester City dynamo Wilfred Ndidi.
