Super Eagles train in darkness ahead of Benin clash


Nigeria coach, Gernot Rohr, has revealed the team trained in darkness and had to rely on light from the moon after they arrived in Porto-Novo.

The Super Eagles travelled by boat to Benin Republic for their 2022 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying game on Saturday.

On their arrival in Porto-Novo, they had their first training session.

Rohr has revealed the Benin football governing body did not make provision for floodlights for them.

“There was no light but we handled it, we have the full moon. Tomorrow I feel good harmony in my team. Even if there are some problems we are all the time having a positive mind,” Rohr told the media.

“It’s a big challenge to win here tomorrow because they didn’t lose a match since eight years, so we want to do that.

“We know that with a draw we have the ticket for the Afcon. This is our first target and then later we speak about the second match. Everybody is fit, no injuries and I hope we can do what we want to do.”
