Gernot Rohr is confident his Super Eagles won’t lose to their hosts in this weekend’s 2021 African Cup of Nations qualifiers in Porto Novo.
The Squirrels of Benin Republic are unbeaten at home in eight years and their Coach Michel Dussuyer believes they won’t relinquish the record any time soon.
Rohr won the first meeting between both sides 2-1, at the Nest champions in Uyo back in 2019 and the Franco-German tactician said he is aware Benin Republic will give his side a difficult game at home.
“Everybody wants to beat Nigeria, but nobody could beat us until now in the qualifiers. So, I believe we will not lose there, it’ll be a big challenge to win there, they didn’t lose any game since 8 years.
” They’re used to playing at home, they have a good ground, they’ll have also I think 10,000 people in the stadium (game will be played behind closed doors).
“So, they’ll want to beat Nigeria, it is normal but we also want to win there it’s a big challenge, they didn’t lose match since 8 years,” He told brila.net.
Meanwhile the Super Eagles will depart for Benin Republic, Friday.
The match will be played at Stade Charles de Gaulle, Porto-Novo.
