Nigeria qualifies for AFCON 2022 even before kick off of their game in Benin

Nigeria has booked their place at the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations, even before the kick off of their game against Benin Republic in Porto Novo.

This is as a result of the goalless draw between Lesotho and Sierra Leone in the early kick-off in Group L.

With the outcome of the game, Lesotho can no longer qualify for next year’s tournament in Cameroon.

It also means Sierra Leone cannot match the Super Eagles’ current tally of eight points.
