Nigeria’s CHAN 2018 qualifier started on a poor note on Sunday as the SUPER EAGLES of Nigeria lost to the SQUIRRELS of BENIN REPUBLIC by 1-0 at the STADE DE L’AMITIE in COTONOU. The only goal of  the  encounter  came  in  the 86th minute  via a penalty kick after a BENINOISE striker was brought down by Nigeria’s AFEEZ AREMU. The defeat means the SUPER EAGLES must win the second leg billed for the 19th of August at SANNI ABACHA stadium in KANO by a wide margin.
