In front of their fans, the 120th-ranked squad in the Fifa rankings upset the three-time African champions.
On Thursday, Nigeria was defeated 1-0 by the Central African Republic in a 2022 Fifa World Cup qualifying match.
With no incisive attempts at goal, the three-time African champions struggled to break down their opponents’ defense at Teslim Balogun Stadium, and they were punished in the 90th minute when CAR converted their sole effort on target with Karl Namnganda’s strike.
In the absence of Wilfred Ndidi and Alex Iwobi, Frank Onyeka of Brentford and Joe Aribo of Rangers were given the nod to start for Nigeria, with Francis Uzoho taking over in goal from Maduka Okoye and Daniel Akpeyi
The Central African Republic’s defense was more firm and coordinated, and they were rewarded for their perseverance when they took advantage of a miscalculation by William Troost-Ekong and Leon Balogun, allowing Namnganda to shoot his shot past the hapless Uzoho.
