The players and coaching team left Nigeria on Friday morning, March 26, by boat due to the proximity of both West African countries. They arrived in Porto Novo at about 1:59 PM.
The match is a must-win for both nations with Nigeria leading the Group L table after picking up eight points from four matches while the Benin Republic are in the second spot with seven points.
We have arrived in Porto Novo. We also had our mandatory Covid test done at the point of entry.
We’ve settled in and lodged at the Golden Tulip Le Diplomat Hotel in Cotonou.#SoarSuperEagles#Team9jaStrong pic.twitter.com/b7TG4TVyL4
