African Qualifiers: Super Eagles arrive Nigeria ahead of important Cape Verde clash

Nigeria has a lot of work to do to pick the sole ticket for the final round.

The Super Eagles arrived Sunday morning aboard Air Peace as attention shifts to the all-important final match against Cape Verde on Tuesday.

"We have landed Lagos, Nigeria safely via chartered Air Peace Airline," the official Super Eagles account posted on Facebook.

"It was a smooth journey. Thanks to the entire Air Peace crew for the great hospitality. So, we’re back to work - getting set for the game against Cape Verde on Tuesday."

Two penalties, the first from Victor Osimhen, early in the first half, and a late one in the second half from captain Ahmed Musa, who was a second half substitute, helped the Eagles to a rather unconvincing 0-2 win over their hosts, the Lone Stars of Liberia on Saturday.

It was a much-needed win that ensured Nigeria remained top of Group C on 12 points, just two ahead of their next opponent, Cape Verde, who came from behind to beat Central African Republic at home in the other group game.

The Super Eagles need just a point from that game to guarantee their place in the final round of qualifiers and must avoid a repeat of what happened the last time they played at home in the same venue for Tuesday's clash, the Teslim Balogun stadium.
