Eagles arrive Abidjan for crucial 2026 World Cup qualifier against Benin

The Super Eagles have arrived in Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire for a crucial 2026 World Cup qualifier against Benin. The match is scheduled for tomorrow at 5 PM.

 

The media officer of the team, Promise Efoghe, disclosed this in a Whataspp post at exactly 2-20 pm on Sunday

He wrote: “Super eagles have arrived in Abidjan ahead of their World Cup qualifier against Benin Republic.”

Due to FIFA’s ruling that Benin’s home ground does not meet the required standards, the qualifier has been moved to the Houphouet Boigny Stadium in Abidjan.

This stadium served as Nigeria’s base during the last Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).

Last week, Benin, led by former Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr, secured a 1-0 victory against Rwanda in Abidjan, knocking Rwanda off the top spot in Group C. Meanwhile, Nigeria played to a 1-1 draw with South Africa’s Bafana Bafana in Uyo.

The Super Eagles are currently fifth in Group C with three points from three matches, while Benin sits in third place with four points..
