Nigeria beat Liberia 0-2 in Morocco as goals from Victor Osimhen and Ahmed Musa were the ones that sealed the win for Nigeria.
They would be trading tackle with Cape Verde on Tuesday as the case may be in the last round of matches which would decide who wins the group.
The Gernot Rohr’s led side would be one of the favourites to qualify for the Qatar 2022 World Cup from the African region.
But they must prove their mettle with top sides like Senegal, Egypt and Cameroon all in the African contention.
Here Isagoal.com reveals the three lessons we’ve learnt from Nigeria’s successful outing against Liberia.
Nigeria do double against Liberia
The Super Eagles were at their supreme stake level as they defeated the Liberians 0-2 in Morocco at the weekend.
The Eagles scored in each half to seal the win while they needed a first-half double from Kelechi Iheanacho to secure the three points in the first leg.
Nigeria may have struggled to beat their Liberian counterpart home and away in the past (previous meetings).
But this time they achieved the feat as the likes of Osimhen and Ejuke inspired Nigeria to win ahead of the next round of the World Cup Qualifiers (African play-offs).
Nigeria must improve
The Super Eagles are in need of massive improvement so to say as Nigeria managed a 0-2 win on the smooth Morocco Stadium on Saturday.
With quality-laden in Gernot Rohr’s Super Eagles Squad, the result and the team’s performance should be on the upward spiral.
Even as we expect more from the likes of Alex Iwobi and Ahmed Musa though the latter got a goal for himself in the contest from the Penalty spot.
Nigeria have penalty takers
Though it could be worrisome as to why Nigeria was only able to score twice from the Penalty spot against the Liberian side.
It could be a positive one to note that with Victor Osimhen and Ahmed Musa in the team, Nigeria is good to go in the Penalty taking circumstances.
It was a defining one for the Super Eagles as Victor Osimhen and Skipper Musa converted from the spot to seal a 0-2 win against Liberia.
There are tight games where this penalty-taking personnel would be key as Nigeria aspires for more greatness in the days ahead with Cape Verde next on the cards for them in the World Cup Qualifiers.
