Super Eagles Apologizes to Nigerians Over Defeat to Benin Republic


Following the 2-1 defeat to Benin Republic at the Stade Felix Houphouet-Boigny in Abidjan on Monday in the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers, the Super Eagles has apologized to Nigerians.

In a tweet on its official handle, they promised to fight hard to ensure that Nigeria picks the ticket to the world cup finals.

“We are back in the country and we are not happy about the way the two games panned out. We have had talks among ourselves and have resolved to fight hard till the end to ensure we do the impossible which is qualifying for the 2026 World Cup.

“We don’t take your support for granted, we thank you immensely. Soar Super Eagles.”

Defeat means the Eagles remain on three points from four matches, and are condemned to winning all their remaining six games of the qualification series to have any chance of reaching the finals in Canada, USA and Mexico in two years’ time.
