2022 World Cup Qualifiers: Nigeria paid the price for underestimating CAR – Savoy

 The Super Eagles looked down on the Wild Beasts and were made to bear the brunt, according to the Spanish-Swiss tactician

Nigeria was paid "the hard way" for underrating the Central African Republic, according to coach Raoul Savoy.

The Wild Beasts pulled off a shock 1-0 triumph over the three-time African champions in Thursday’s 2022 Fifa World Cup qualifier staged at the Teslim Balogun Stadium.

Despite boasting superior ball possession and numerous scoring chances, Gernot Rohr’s men were stunned by super-sub Karl Namnganda, who profited from a moment of carelessness by William Troost-Ekong’s backline.

With this result, the Central African country has earned their first win in Group C en route to Qatar 2022.

For Savoy, the result was their own way of repaying the 2013 African champions for underestimating them before the showdown in Lagos.
