Benin Beat Nigeria 1-0

Benin Beat Nigeria 1-0

Skipper Mama Seibou scored from the penalty spot with four minutes left to put Benin Republic in the driving seat of their 2018 African Nations Championship qualifying fixture against Nigeria.

The West Zone B first-leg encounter was played at the Stade de l'AmitiƩ in the capital city of Benin, Cotonou.

The first half ended 0-0 with Nigerian side on the front foot, having carved out some chances and caused panic in Benin's vital area.

Three youth killed in latest bloodshed in occupied Kashmir
Earlier, the youth clashed with the security forces in Awneera to break the cordon around the village on Saturday. The two soldiers who have lost their lives have been identified Sepoy Ilayaraja P and Sepoy Gowai Sumedh Waman.

The home side dictated the pace of the game from the blast of the whistle but it wasn't until the 29th minute when they came close to scoring. Kingsley Eduwo and Rabiu Ali wasted two opportunities that came the way of the Eagles.

However, with just few minutes to full time, Nigeria's hesitant defending presented the home team a lifeline via a penalty and they gladly made the most of it to hand them a slight advantage going into the reverse clash.

With the match nearly looking like a stalemate, the Squirrels were then awarded a late penalty when Hafiz Aremu brought down a Beninoise player in the Super Eagles' vital area and Mama Seibou then stepped forward to hit the back of the net in the 89th minute, and Benin ran out 1-0 winners.
