Victory is the only option

The Super Eagles of Nigeria The Super Eagles of Nigeria

Nigeria clashes with Liberia in the return leg of the 2022 World Cup Qualifier. The Eagles had earlier secured a 2 – 0 win against the Lone Stars of Liberia weeks ago at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos.

Currently topping the table with 9 points is the Nigerian team who seem ready to give all it takes to win their qualifying games against Liberia and Cape Verde. Just recently, Nigeria’s head coach, Gernot Rohr, made a move that got lots of people talking, he pulled out Odion Ighalo from retirement to help the squad for these important 2022 World Cup qualifiers matches.

The 32-year-old who has expressed happiness with being back in the game retired from the national football after the 2019 African Cup of Nations in Egypt.

Does the former Manchester United striker still have some winning tricks up his sleeves?

A lonely season for the Lone Stars
The Lone Stars have had little or no reason to celebrate this season. They have performed rather too poorly in all matches so far, losing five out of six matches played in all competitions. The Liberians currently hold the bottom place in Group C with 3 points.

Can they impress their home fans by dishing the Eagles a shocking and unexpected defeat?

From the look of things, the Super Eagles are ready to take on the Liberians. But you know football could take an unexpected turn at times.
