The three-time Africa Cup of Nations champions gave up their over two-decade unbeaten World Cup record on Thursday when they fell to a disappointing 1-0 defeat to the Wild Beasts at the Teslim Balogun Stadium in Lagos.
Central Africans made their hosts pay for those wasted chances when Karl Namnganda netted a 90th-minute winner to hand the 124th-ranked team their first win of the series.
Despite their embarrassing defeat on home soil, Nigeria still sit top of Group C with six points and could consolidate their grip with a win on Sunday.
However, the CAR could overtake the former Afcon kings on the group standings with another victory in Cameroon.
