Super Eagles beat Benin 2-0 to qualify for CHAN 2018

Nigeria's home-based Super Eagles on Saturday qualified for, 2018 CAF African Nations Championship, CHAN,  holding in Kenya next year by defeating Benin Republic 2-0 in the reverse fixture of a two-legged play-off to win 2-1 on aggregate.

The Eagles had lost the first leg 1 - 0 in Cotonou and that needed them to score at least two goals in Kano, which they eventually did.

The Benin side got a lifeline when they won a penalty but Eagles goalkeeper Ikechukwu Ezenwa dived in the right direction and made the save to make sure the score remained unchanged.

Goals were scored by Rabiu Ali and Kingsley Eduwo.
