Gernot Rohr, the Benin Republic head coach, is optimistic the Squirrels can beat the Super Eagles again.

The Squirrels claimed a famous 2-1 victory over their close door neighbour in a 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers last month.

The two countries were drawn again in the same group for the 2025 Africa Cup of Nations on Thursday.

Rohr, who managed the Super Eagles for six years is adamant his team what it takes to record another victory against the three-time African champions.

“It’s a difficult draw, because there’s Nigeria again. And we have Rwanda, an adversary that we know well and of whom we are wary. There is also Libya who have a good team, it will be a difficult trip there,” Rohr was quoted by the official website of Benin Football Federation.

“Another reunion with Nigeria. That’s going to be three more games with them [including the upcoming second leg, counting for the 2026 World Cup qualifiers]. It’s a reunion against a very good team. But we gained confidence and we know we can beat them.’
