Nigeria vs Central African Republic: Kick-off, TV channel, squad news and preview

The Central African Republic come up against Nigeria as the race towards qualifying for the 2022 Fifa World Cup continues on Thursday.

Victories over Liberia and Cape Verde have seen the Super Eagles lead Group C with six points, while Liberia occupy second position with just six points.

Against the Wild Beasts, they would be hoping to secure maximum points to boost their chances of qualifying for a seventh tournament.

Although they are massive underdogs heading into this crunch tie, Raoul Savoy’s men would be hoping to upset the three-time African kings at the Teslim Balogun Stadium.
