Paul Onuachu scored a late winner as the Super Eagles of Nigeria defeated Benin 1-0 at the Stade Charles de Gaulle on Saturday night, March 27, in a 2021 African Cup of Nations qualifier.
After diving for the ball during a frantic goal mouth play, Onuachu nodded home in the 93rd minute, snapping Benin’s eight-year unbeaten home streak.
With the goal, the Super Eagles now top Group L with 11 points from five games.
Benin will now have to fight for qualification next week in Sierra Leone, after Sierra Leone drew 0-0 in Lesotho earlier today.
The Super Eagles will now play Lesotho in Lagos next week, but the game will have no significance giving Rohr an opportunity to test fringe players.
