Super Eagles to Face Benin in FIFA World Cup Qualifier at Neutral Venue

Super Eagles

The Super Eagles are set to clash with Benin Republic in a FIFA World Cup 2026 qualifier, but due to sub-standard stadiums in Benin, the match will be held at a neutral venue.

Reports indicate that discussions are underway between Benin’s football association and their Ivorian counterpart to potentially play the game at one of Ivory Coast’s stadiums previously used during the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

Scheduled between June 3 and 11, the upcoming round of World Cup qualifiers will see Nigeria hosting South Africa’s Bafana Bafana before facing off against Benin.
