A last minute of Extra Time goal scored by Paul Onuachu who replaced Kelechi Iheanacho gave Super Eagle lone goal victory over Benin Republic on Saturday’s African Cup of Nation’s qualifying series.
The Eagles had already qualified for the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) earlier after Sierra Leone and Lesotho played goalless draw.
The victory ended Benin Republic’s eight years invincibility at home.
Earlier, Iheanacho’s shot on seven minutes of the game was parried by the Benin goalie for a corner for Nigeria and another good exchange between Iheanacho and Victor Osimhen was taken care of again by Benin on nine minutes.
