The Africa Cup of Nations qualifier game between Nigeria and Benin republic is scheduled for 5 PM Nigerian time on Saturday, March 27, 2021. You can watch the game on AIT and NTA. The game would be held at Stade Charles de Gaulle, Porto-Novo.
Benin republic are also hoping to appear at the biennial African football competition for the fifth time in their history and will attempt to shock the 2013 winners. It appears the Super Eagles would be going into the game with a very strong squad.
