Eagles Edge Cape Verde In Mindelo, Soars Atop 2022 W/Cup Group C


The Super Eagles of Nigeria came from a goal down to beat Cape Verde 2-1 to make it two wins out of two in Group C of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers at the Estadio Municipal Aderito Sena, in Mindelo on Tuesday, Completesports.com reports.

A Victor Osimhen equalizer and an own goal from Kenny Rocha, secured the hard fought win for the Eagles.

With the win, the Eagles now go six points and three points ahead of second placed Liberia.

Gernot Rohr had to make a lot of changes in his starting eleven due to the absence of most of the regulars with the likes of Kenneth Omeruo, Ahmed Musa, Chidozie Awaziem, Innocent Bonke, Kingsley Michael and Chidera Ejuke all starting.

Also, the game saw Musa make his 100th appearance for the Super Eagles, joining Joseph Yobo and Vincent Enyeama to reach the figure.
