Nigeria vs Central African Republic: how and where to watch - times, TV, online
Nigeria and the Central African Republic continue their quest for a ticket to the Qatar World Cup as they play at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos, Nigeria with a 18:00 CEST/12:00 ET start.
The other sides in Group C, Liberia and Cape Verde are also in action but it's Gernot Rohr's 'Super Eagles' who are the fancied side to advance with two wins from their two opening games.
Thursday's clash in Lagos will be the first competitive game between both nations and with the 'Wild Beasts' ranked at 124 in the latest FIFA rankings (the 'Super Eagles' are ranked at 34), a home win for the Nigerian side is very much on the cards before both sides meet again next week in Cameroon, after FIFA deemed that no pitch in CAR was suitable for a World Cup qualifying contest.
