The Super Eagles of Nigeria who arrived Benin Republic some days ago played their fifth group game with the home team despite the fact that both teams had already qualified for AFCON following the goalless draw played by Sierra Leone and Lesotho in their fifth group L match. The likes of Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho who play for Leicester City were in the starting line up that faced Benin Republic. Others were Victor Osimhen, the Napoli star striker, Chukwueze.
As a normal traditional, the Super Eagles had a training session before the game started and the likes of Victor Oshimhen and Kelechi Iheanacho were very impressive on training ground as they displayed their wealth of experience on the pitch.
Iheanacho, fondly called ‘Senior Man’ who has been nominated as the best player in EPL for the month of March was seen showing his good skills and ability to keep the ball in play.
The first half was indeed a touch match for both teams who had already qualified for AFCON as they found it difficult to unlock the defebse of their opponent. The Super Eagles made several attempts on goal but majority were off target.
The Napoli Striker, Osimhen and Aribo took control of the game at the start of the first half and towards the end of the second half as they made several attempts on goal which were all futile.
The second half was less entertaining than the first half as most of the players were already tired. But few minutes to the final whistle, Paul Onuachu scored in the 90+3 minutes to give the Super Eagles a 1-0 win and break an 8 year record Porto Novo, Benin Republic, a place where the Super Eagles of Nigeria have never won a match for the past 8 years.
A twitter user named Mr Farms replied to a tweet made by the official page of the Super Eagles after a 1-0 win as he said Chukwueze was one of the best player in today’s match against Benin Republic. He added that the striker plays amazing football and he is a world class footballer.
