Nigeria's Super Eagles are in search of the vital one point or outright victory  against host, Squirrels of Benin Republic in this Saturday's crucial African Nations Cup qualifier for AFCON 2022 in Cameroon

Franco-German tactician, Gernot Rohr will need to formulate a winning formular to take the fight to the Beninoise who are trailing Eagles behind in the second position with seven points 

The Eagles who arrived the city of Porto-Novo in Benin Republic on Friday via water-ways from Lagos Jetty, are topping Group L with Eight points 

The Nigerian side with some of its top players including top strikers the duo of Licester City's Kelechi Iheanacho and Napoli's Victor Osimhen, will be leaving no stone unturned in the make or mar encounter against the homeside, Squirrels are also determined to take their own pound of flesh against the visiting Super Eagles who narrowly defeated them two/one in the first leg of the qualifier played in Nigeria 

A point for the Eagles in the match, will ensure a qualification ticket with a last qualifying match to spare against bottom placed Crocodiles of Lesotho in Lagos on March 31

Rohr in a chat with newsmen, expressed confidence of the fitness and mental alertness of Eagles to secure the vital point, despite having the first training session on arrival at Porto-Novo without flood light inside the main-bowl of the stadium
