World Cup qualifiers: Super Eagles arrive Douala for return fixture against Central African Republic

Nigeria’s Super Eagles have arrived Douala, Cameroon, for the return leg of their World Cup qualifying match against Central African Republic on Sunday.

The Super Eagles fell to a 1–0 defeat in the home match on Thursday in Lagos but will be aiming for a return to winning ways this time around.

Captain, Ahmed Musa, who is looking forward to earning his milestone 100th cap for Nigeria at senior level, says he is more concerned with the Super Eagles taking all three points on Sunday.

“I’m happy that I am about to win my 100th cap, which definitely is a thing of joy and pride for any football player at international level,” Musa, 27, said.

“However, I am more concerned about the three points. The three points here have become much more precious due to what happened in the first leg which we lost. The individual honour is welcome but I am more concerned about collective glory and our country’s pride.”

After three rounds of qualifying games, Nigeria remain top of Group C with six points, two more than Cape Verde and Central African Republic, with three-pointer Liberia bottom of the table.
