Former Nigerian midfielder, Henry Nwosu has commended the Super Eagles for defeating the Squirrels of Benin in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier on Saturday.
Recall that the team defeated Benin 1-0 thanks to Paul Onuachu’s last-minute goal to end their unbeaten home record and also qualify for the bi-annual tournament as group winner with a game to spare.
Speaking with Completesports, Nwosu said that he was impressed with the determination of the players against Benin on Saturday.
“I am really impressed with the general performance of the Super Eagles players against Benin on Saturday. The team knows the importance of the game and they took the game straight to their opponent without showing any sign that they have qualified after the Lesotho and Sierra Leone game.
“I also want to commend the Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr for a well-done job with the team and for qualifying Nigeria for the 2021 AFCON tournament in Cameroon.”
