Our prediction for this World Cup 2022 match:
Nigeria play host to Central Africa at their Teslim Balogun Stadium in the Group C round 3. The Super Eagles aim to keep their 100% record in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers intact, and they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in Thursday’s football match. Fit-again Napoli attacker Victor Osimhen is widely expected to lead the line for the hosts, while both Okoye and Omeruo should be cautious as the duo is one yellow card away from suspension.
Les Fauves, on the other hand, have yet to record a win in the process. Following a 1-1 draw with Cape Verde, Central Africa suffered a 1-0 loss to Liberia in their second group game. Anyhow, Raoul Savoy’s troops will have a big fish to fry in the Teslim Balogun Stadium showdown. It has to be noted that the two national teams have never met before in a competitive match.
Highlighted Player (Victor Moses):
Over the years Victor Moses has established himself as one of the best African footballers. Moses was a first-team regular for Chelsea under Antonio Conte and he scored three goals in 28 appearances for the Blues in the 2017/2018 Premier League campaign.
The Nigerian footballer, though, started his senior career at Crystal Palace, before joining Wigan Athletic in 2010. Moses played for the likes of Liverpool, Stoke City and West Ham United on loan as well. Speaking of his international career, the pacey winger played for Nigeria at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations and he scored two goals for the Super Eagles in a 2-0 win over Ethiopia.
Moses represented Nigeria at the 2014 FIFA World Cup as well where the African side faced the likes of Bosnia, Iran and Argentina in the group stages. His main position is winger, but he is used as a full-back as well. Victor Moses was born in Lagos, Nigeria on December 12, 1990.
