The Squirrels of Benin Republic on Sunday defeated Nigeria's home-based Super Eagles 1-0 in a CHAN-qualifier.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the Zone B first-leg encounter took place at the Stade de l'Amitié in the country's capital city, Cotonou.

The Squirrels carved out the Eagles with a number of chances in the first half; the cross bar coming to the rescue on one occasion.

The home side dictated the pace of the game from the blast of the whistle but it wasn't until the 29th minute when they came close to scoring.

That gifted Benin Republic a late penalty which they converted to beat Nigeria by a lone goal in the first leg clash.

Factors beyond Mahomes' performance factored into the depth chart reshuffle, Reid said. "I thought he actually played very well". Reid did mention the switch is only for practice right now and has yet to make a decision concerning the next preseason game.


The victor between Nigeria and Benin Republic will qualify automatically for the 2018 CHAN in Kenya.

The Eagles have been camping in Kano ahead of the tie and will host Benin Republic in the reverse fixture next week at the Sani Abacha Stadium in Kano.

Benin also had a chance of their own in the 84th minute but goalkeeper Okechukwu Ezenwa did well to save a low shot as the hosts began to pour forward in search of a goal.

The 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN) will hold between January 11 to February 2 in Kenya.
