2026 World Cup: Nigeria Faces Must-Win Match Against Benin

The Super Eagles are set to face Benin at the Stade Félix Houphouët-Boigny in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, on Monday, in a crucial World Cup qualifier.

Led by coach Finidi George, the Nigerian team aims to recover from their recent 1-1 draw against South Africa in Uyo last Friday.

The Super Eagles have yet to secure a victory in their last three matches since the start of the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

Currently, Nigeria is under pressure as they sit in fifth place with 3 points, trailing Rwanda, Benin, and South Africa, who each have 4 points. Lesotho leads the group with 5 points, while Zimbabwe is at the bottom with 2 points.

The match is scheduled to kick off at 5 PM, with Nigeria needing a win to keep their hopes alive for a spot in the 2026 FIFA World Cup.
