World Cup qualifier: Benin Republic face Super Eagles in Abidjan 

1 min read

Benin Republic will entertain neighbours Nigeria at the Felix Houphouet Boigny Stadium, Abidjan in June.

The 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifying Matchday four tie has been moved to Abidjan after the Benin Football Federation failed to provide a suitable ground to host the game.

It will be a return to familiar territory for the Super Eagles, who were based in Abidjan during the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations and played three of their seven games at the Felix Houphouet Boigny Stadium.

The West Africans will host the Bafana Bafana of South Africa in a matchday three encounter before taking on the Squirrels.

The encounter against South Africa will be played at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, Uyo on Friday, 7th June.

The Super Eagles are yet to record a win in the qualifiers after they salvaged a draw in their opening two games against Lesotho and Zimbabwe.
