W’Cup Qualifiers: Eagles Drop To Fourth After Benin Win

Rwanda’s loss, however, provides an opportunity for the Eagles, who must defeat South Africa in Uyo today to capitalize on the result.

By Paul Tuama

The Super Eagles fell from third to fourth in Group C of the 2026 World Cup qualifiers without playing, due to Benin Republic’s 1-0 victory over Rwanda in their third group match on Thursday.

Coached by former Super Eagles manager Gernot Rohr, Benin overtook Nigeria and South Africa, moving to second place in the group with four points, matching leaders Rwanda. Dodo Dokou’s first-half goal at the Stade Félix Houphouët-Boigny, their adopted home ground in Ivory Coast, secured the win for Benin.

Rwanda’s loss, however, provides an opportunity for the Eagles, who must defeat South Africa in Uyo today to capitalize on the result.

A victory for Nigeria against Bafana Bafana would place them at the top of the table with five points, one ahead of Rwanda, who have led with four points since defeating South Africa in their second match.

Following today’s match against South Africa, the Eagles face another challenging game against Benin in Ivory Coast on Monday, while South Africa will play Zimbabwe.
