Super Eagles are more superior to Benin Republic’s Squirrels – Dussuyer

Benin Republic head coach Michel Dussuyer admitted his side are no match for the Super Eagles of Nigeria after Wednesday’s 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying fixture at the Akwa Ibom International Stadium, Uyo.


Skipper Stephan Sessegnon put the Squirrels ahead in the second minute of the game after he was set up by Joel Dossou.


Nigeria then equalised on the stroke of half time Victor Osimhen converted a penalty after Ola Aina was fouled in the box.


Bordeaux winger Samuel Kalu completed the comeback for Nigeria in the 62nd minute.


Speaking after the Dussuyer said his boys defended very well and tried to avoid defeat, but admitted Nigeria paraded quality players who made it imposibble for his side.


“We played well in the first half, defended well, Nigeria did not create many opportunities but we conceded a penalty just before the half time which gave more confidence to Nigeria in the second half,” Dussuyer stated.


“The second half was very hard (for us) and we wasted many balls, gave it to Nigeria so many times.


“In the end we tried to recover after conceding and we had an opportunity at the end (which hit the post) but it is logical; there’s a difference between Nigeria and Benin but we have fought for as much as we can.” He concluded.
