Frank Onyeka helps Nigeria to qualifying win

Sunday's international action round-up

11 October 2021

Frank Onyeka played 90 minutes on Sunday as Nigeria bounced back from Thursday’s shock defeat with a 2-0 victory over Central African Republic in 2022 FIFA World Cup Qualifying.

The match was played at the Stade Omnisport, Yaoundé, Cameroon as The Super Eagles looked to avenge Thursday's reverse on home soil at the hands of the CAR. And they ensured just that with two goals in the final quarter of the first-half; Rangers defender Leon Balogun and Napoli striker Victor Osimhen the men on target. 

That was how it stayed as Nigeria retained their two point advantage at the top of Group C with two to play. Those games, against Liberia and Cape Verde, come next month with only the top side from each group going through to the Final Play-Off Round.

The cap was Frank’s third for his nation and second of this international break, having also played the full 90 minutes on Thursday.
