Former Kwara United coach, Samson Unuanel has urged the Super Eagles players and technical crew to take Nigeria’s 2022 World Cup qualifier against Liberia like a Cup final.

After suffering a first World Cup qualifying defeat in 40 years last Thursday in Lagos, to the Central African Republic, the Super Eagles gained back some redemption with a 2-0 victory over the Central African Republic on Sunday at the Stade Omnisports in Douala.

Nigeria now leads the group with nine points from four games after an inspiring performance from Gernot Rohr’s men.

With the team set to face Liberia in what could be a decider in November, Unuanel in a chat with, said that the Super Eagles must maintain a high level of concentration and avoid CAR mistakes.

“We have gotten to a point where every point will definitely count for the Super eagles. The game against Liberia will decide the fate of the Super Eagles, most especially if Cape Verde get a favourable result against CAR.

“We must not toy with this game if the team must qualify for the final knockout stages of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers. Liberia should not be a stumbling block for us. It’s three points or nothing.”
