Our prediction for this Africa Cup of Nations 2022 match:
Sao Tome and Principe face Nigeria at Stade Adrar in a David-vs-Goliath clash on Monday afternoon. The Falcons and True Parrots kicked off their AFCON qualifying campaign with a 5-1 loss to Guinea Bissau, and they are seen as big underdogs in their second group game as well. Sao Tome and Principe face an uphill task against the star-studded Super Eagles, and we do not believe that they are capable of making a miracle in Agadir.
Selemane is widely expected to replace Rocha in the starting XI. Nigeria, on the other hand, came from behind to beat Sierra Leone in their opener. Even though a couple of Nigeria first-team regulars have been omitted, anything but a routine away win would be a major surprise. A man to watch in the away side will be Napoli striker Victor Osimhen, who scored the winner against Sierra Leone.
