AFCON Qualifiers: Super Eagles get new dates for Benin, Lesotho ties.


The official dates for the Super Eagles’ last two matches in the qualifying series for the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations to be hosted by Cameroon have been announced.

Coach Genort Rohr’s men were originally scheduled to face the Benin Republic national team in their matchday 5 fixture on March 22 but will now battle the Squirrels on Saturday, March 27. The match will be played in Porto Novo.

Nigeria emerged 2-1 victorious in the reverse fixture against the Beninoise earlier in the qualifiers with Victor Osimhen and Samuel Kalu getting the goals after the Squirrels took a shock lead through Stephane Sessegnon in the fifth minute of the encounter played at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium on November 13, 2019.

The Eagles will round off their campaign with their last match against Lesotho, on Tuesday 30 March.
