Group C Liberia 0-2 Nigeria – Cape Verde 2-1 Central African Republic

Only a draw will be enough for Nigeria to reach the final round of the World Cup qualifiers after the Super Eagles 2-0 win over Liberia on Saturday. In Group D, Cameroon must beat the Ivory Coast in Douala on Tuesday to secure their place in the playoffs rounds.

Goals from Victor Osimhen and Ahmed Musa ensure Nigeria takes control over the Lone Stars at the Stade Ibn Batouta, Tangier.

As a result, the Super Eagles, who will host Cape Verdein a top-of-the-table Group C clash on Tuesday, only need a point to book their place in the final round of Qatar 2022 qualifiers.

The win over Liberia gave Nigeria 12 points and Cape Verde 10 after five rounds, while the Central African Republic (four) and Liberia (three) are out of the running.

Group B Equatorial Guinea 1-0 Tunisia

Hosts Equatorial Guinea stunned fancied Tunisia with a 1-0 win in Malabo with a late goal from Pablo Ganet, who plays in the fourth tier of Spanish club football.

Group D Ivory Coast 3-0 Mozambique – Malawi 0-4 Cameroon

Ivory Coast will take on Cameroon in a top of table encounter in the final group match in Douala on Tuesday and must avoid a defeat to progress to the next stage of the competition.
