Super Eagles coach, Finidi George has assured Nigerians that the team will do better against Benin Republic in today’s World Cup qualifier at the Stade Felix Houphouet-Boigny Stadium, Cote d’Ivoire.

The Super Eagles had a disappointing outing against South Africa last Friday and today’s game is an opportunity for them to redeem themselves.

And coach George knows this and has assured that the outcome will be different.

Speaking with thenff.com on arrival in Abidjan yesterday, he said: “We’re very much aware of why we are here and what we have to do. The players want to go to the World Cup and they have resolved to give their all in every game going forward.

“We had our opportunities against South Africa on Friday and should have won, but that is gone and we face another challenge now.

“We have resolved not to look too far ahead in this race. The essence is to take it one match at a time. Benin Republic is in our front now, and we must deal with that squarely.”

With only three points from their first three matches of the campaign, and going up against the Cheetahs who boast four points, the Eagles know they must fire on all cylinders and recreate the happy moments of the AFCON at the Stade Felix Houphouet-Boigny – where they won all three matches played there during the Africa Cup of Nations finals earlier in the year.
