Onuachu strikes late as Nigeria beat Benin 1-0

Substitute Paul Onuachu scored a late winner as Nigeria edged Benin 1-0 in the ongoing 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.

Onuachu, a 70th minute substitute for Kelechi Iheanacho, nodded home the rebound in the last minute of stoppage time after Victor Osimhen’s effort was parried onto his path by the Benin goalie.

The Super Eagles already booked a ticket for the biennial event holding in Cameroon next year after fellow Group L sides, Lesotho and Sierra Leone played a 0-0 draw earlier in the day.

But Gernot Rohr’s side made sure of the superiority in the group by beating the squirrels on their home turf to move four points clear ahead of Tuesday’s clash with Lesotho.
