The Super Eagles of Nigeria will face the Cheetahs of Benin Republic in a crucial 2026 World Cup qualifier on Monday.

Currently positioned fifth in Group C, Nigeria is eager to secure their first victory of the qualifying campaign. The Super Eagles have drawn their first three matches against Lesotho, Zimbabwe, and South Africa, with their latest game resulting in a 1-1 draw against South Africa at the Godwin Akpabio Stadium.

Coach Finidi George, expressing his disappointment with the draw against South Africa’s Bafana Bafana, remains confident that the Super Eagles will rebound and revitalize their qualification prospects.

A win for Nigeria against the second-placed Benin Republic, who have four points in Group C, would significantly enhance Nigeria’s standing and revive their World Cup hopes.

Benin Republic have also had a challenging start to their campaign, with only one point separating them from Nigeria. The Cheetahs, coached by former Super Eagles manager Gernot Rohr, lost their opening match to South Africa and drew against Lesotho. However, they secured a 1-0 victory over Rwanda in their last game.

Historically, Nigeria has dominated Benin Republic, winning 13 of their 16 encounters, with two draws and one loss. The Super Eagles have won their last three matches against the Cheetahs, though Benin Republic’s sole victory came in 2017, showing they can be tough opponents.
