2026 WCQ: We want to do the impossible – Super Eagles react to 2-1 Benin defeat


The Super Eagles have vowed to bounce back from their 2-1 defeat to Benin Republic in a 2026 World Cup qualifier on Monday.

Nigeria is yet to win a game in the series, having drawn their first three fixtures.

Finidi George’s men took the lead in Abidjan but conceded twice before half time.

The players and their coach have flown back to the country after the loss.

In a post on X confirming their arrival, the Eagles said on their official handle: “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.”
