CHAN 2018 Qualifiers : Benin Republic Beats Nigeria 1-0

Benin Republic secured a 1-0 win over Nigeria in the first leg CHAN qualifier played in Cotonou on Sunday evening. CHAN Eagles’ Afeez Aremu committed a foul in the 89th minute.
That gifted Benin Republic a late penalty which they converted to beat Nigeria by a lone goal in the first leg clash.

The Beninoise began the game stronger. But despite their early domination, they hardly created any real chances to hurt the Super Eagles B team.

As the Nigeria team settled into the game, they did try to hurt their host but it was fruitless as the first half ended in a barren draw.

Nigeria seized the initiative in the second half but they also failed to bury the chances they created.

While it was looking like the game will end in a stalemate, a foul in the 89th minute from Aremu who lost possession and in his bid to regain the ball, brought down a Benin player resulted in a penalty kick.

Ikechukwu Ezenwa was well beaten from the spot and the game ended 1-0 in favour of Benin Republic.

The CHAN Eagles will hope to turn the table in the second leg, which comes up next weekend in Kano.
