AFCON

Benin Republic Legend Writes Off Super Eagles, Says "They Are Not Special

Former captain Jimmy Adjovi of the national team of Benin Republic says the Super Eagles of Nigeria no longer carry the pedigree of a team that strike fears into the minds of opponents.

Speaking ahead of today’s AFCON 2022 qualifiers tie he said he is confident that Benin Republic won’t lose to Nigeria judging by the fact that Nigeria needed a penalty to beat them in the reverse fixture in Uyo.

“I think we can trust Michel Dussuyer who has demonstrated his last years all his skills whether in the choice of players, whether in the management of the team to bring them to the highest level”, said former player to Benin Republic radio station Frisson Radio.

“I am pretty confident we are winning.” Making reference to match day 1 in Uyo were the Super Eagles needed a penalty kick goal to fight back from a goal down to eventually win 2-1. They are not special, the former Benin ex-player remarked:

“If we could have a positive match against Nigeria at home, we would have taken a big step towards qualifying. I don’t even think of a defeat, it is impossible.”
