Nigeria returned to winning ways in the World Cup Qualifying campaign by defeating the Central African Republic 2-0 at the Stade Omnisport Stadium in Yaounde, Cameroun, on Sunday.

However, first half goals from Leon Balogun (29') and Victor Osimhen (45+1') helped the Super Eagles make up for the defeat.

The victory takes Nigeria top of Group C in their World Cup Qualifiers after three wins and a loss.

Rohr's men will face Liberia away in November before their final home game against Cape Verde.
