AFCON Qualifiers: Nigeria Beat Benin 1-0

AFCON Qualifiers: Nigeria Beat Benin 1-0 5

Nigeria outclassed Benin in a game that ended 1-0; shattering Benin’s hope of booking a spot at next year’s Africa Cup of Nations.

Substitute Paul Onuachu’s 94th-minute winner means that Nigeria, who had already qualified after Lesotho and Sierra Leone’s draw earlier in the day, go through to the finals in Cameroon as winners of Group L.

That’s Benin’s first home defeat since all the way back in June 2013.

Despite the blow of having qualification snatched from their grasp today, though, Michel Dussuyer’s men remain very well placed indeed to reach the finals: they will still finish second in the group as long as they avoid defeat when they face Sierra Leone in Freetown on Tuesday.
