The Super Eagles of Nigeria have qualified for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations even before playing against Benin Republic on Saturday.
Nigeria currently stand at eight points and with a 0-0 draw between Lesotho and Sierra Leone in the group’s other game on Saturday.
Sierra Leone needed all three points from the game in order to put pressure on both Nigeria and Benin Republic, but were held to a draw.
Lesotho are now out of the race for a ticket, while the Leone Stars will hope Benin lose to Nigeria later today to keep their hopes of qualification alive.
Meanwhile, coach Gernot Rohr has named his squad for the clash against Benin, with goalkeeper Maduka Okoye being the team’s shotstopper.
