Sochaux FC midfielder Jordel Dossou and Stade Brestois striker Steve Mounié got the goals for the Cheetahs to overturn Raphael Onyedika’s 27th-minute opener for the Super Eagles.

The win sends less-fancied Benin to the top of Group C above former African champions South Africa and Nigeria, with six games remaining in the series.

After the thrilling encounter, Franco-German gaffer Rohr has revealed his desire to qualify Benin for the 2026 World Cup, a feat he managed with Nigeria at Russia 2018.

The victory against the Super Eagles of Nigeria has allowed the Benin people to start dreaming of watching the Cheetahs play at the World Cup for the first time in history.

Nigeria did not qualify for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, after sacking Rohr just before the 2021 AFCON and a few months to the final World Cup qualifying playoffs against Ghana.
