Michel Dussuyer’s side need a point from Tuesday’s away clash against the Leone Stars of Sierra Leone to secure a place in Cameroon 2021.

“To concede right at the death it’s disappointing. We fought hard in the game and thought we did enough to get at least a draw,”Mounie said after the game.

“Things like this happen in football and we have to put it behind us.

“The game against Sierra Leone is what we should be thinking about now. Hopefully we can get a good result and get the qualification ticket.”

    Mounie tried so hard. He played his heart out yesterday. Even though the Squirrels lost, I’m sure no Benin fan will have a word of complaint against this guy.
    When you give your best, even in defeat, you will be appreciated.

    • I,am so disappointed in the hole players,they never move like the squirrel, they were moving like snail, what a poor performance, I never expected that bad game from them, anyway good luck on Tuesday

  • I thought they said they will win… Talk nah free

    Is really a disgrace the Nigeria state can’t cover this match. We always relay on DSTV. When are we go to get over this live match coverage. Even the match played is Nigeria can’t be transmitted by Nigeria. We have a long way to go.
