Benin Republic close to qualifying for 2022 AFCON as Super Eagles fumble

Benin Republic is closing on qualification for the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations, following a 1-0 victory against Lesotho at the Stade Charles de Gaulle on Saturday.

Jodel Dossou’s 24th-minute goal was all Michel Dussuyer’s men needed to secure maximum points.

Having lost 4-2 at home to Nigeria in their last game, Lesotho travelled to Porto-Novo with the ambition of reviving their fading AFCON dream.

A second successive win for Benin Republic leaves them second in Group L with six points – a point below Gernot Rohr’s Super Eagles, who drew 4-4 with Sierra Leone on Friday.

The Leone Stars are ranked third with two points.

Lesotho is bottom of the group after picking up just one point from three outings.
