Paul Onuachu’s Goal Helps Super Eagles Defeat Benin 0-1 As Nigeria Seal AFCON Qualification With A Game To Spare
Written by MAX FM on March 29, 2021
Belgium league goal-scoring machine, Paul Onuachu scored a late winner as the Super Eagles of Nigeria beat Benin 1-0 at the Stade Charles de Gaulle on Saturday night, March 27, at the 2021 African Cup of Nations qualifier.
Onuachu nodded home in the 93rd minute ending Benin’s eight-year unbeaten home run, after scrambling for the ball during a frantic goal mouth action.
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.
