Moses Simon was not allowed to leave France by his club Nantes due to French quarantine laws.

The Super Eagles remains unbeaten after four games in the group.

They defeated Benin and Lesotho, but two draws against Sierra Leone leave them needing a win today.

The last 4-4 draw match against Sierra Leone means Nigeria must get at least two points from their next two matches.

Overall, Saturday’s visitors have a historical advantage over their hosts, who they have beaten in 12 of the 15 previous clashes, losing just once in that time.

Benin can also seal their place at the African tournament set to hold in Cameroon.

Michel Dussuyer’s team came back strong after losing the opening group match against Nigeria.

Benin did not take their chance to move first in the group after a disappointing draw against Lesotho in the last match.

However, they could move top of the group with a win today against Nigeria.

Benin are strong in their country and have not lost a single home match since 2013.
