Super Eagles risk losing world cup qualification match | fab.ng

Big upset in African soccer! Nigeria’s Super Eagles, a strong team usually expected to qualify for the World Cup, is in danger of missing out for the first time in decades. The problem? A surprising loss to the Benin Republic, a much less-favoured team nicknamed the “Cheetahs.” This defeat dropped Nigeria to fifth place in their qualifying group. They desperately needed a win to stay on track, but Benin pulled off a shocking 2-1 victory.

Things are looking tough for Nigeria. They’re now four points behind the leader. That gap could widen to five points if another team wins their next match.

When & where to watch Nigeria vs South Africa match | fab.ng

The Nigerian national football team, nicknamed the Super Eagles, are facing off against South Africa in a World Cup qualifier match. This important game is happening in Nigeria, and the Super Eagles are looking to take the top spot in their group.

This isn’t the first time these two teams have met recently. Earlier this year, Nigeria beat South Africa on penalties during the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) semifinal, although they ultimately lost the final to Ivory Coast. The Super Eagles are hoping to repeat their success against South Africa and continue their journey towards qualifying for the 2026 World Cup.

Victor Osimhen May Consider Saudi Arabia Move

Victor Osimhen May Consider Saudi Arabia Move | Fab.ng

There’s a rumour swirling around Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen. It’s a tale of past success, present uncertainty, and a hefty price tag. Osimhen’s chapter at Napoli could be coming to a close. Their final game of the season ended in a disappointing draw, and rumours are swirling that the striker might be looking for new pastures.

Victor Osimhen, shining star, then a bump in the road

Osimhen has undeniably been a bright spot for Napoli. He played a key role in their 2022/23 Serie A championship win, even claiming the top scorer title that season. However, this past season wasn’t Napoli’s strongest, and Osimhen’s goal tally dipped to 15. Despite this, his talent hasn’t gone unnoticed.

A shopping list of seekers for Victor Osimhen

Victor Osimhen remains a hot asset, attracting interest from some of Europe’s biggest clubs. Arsenal, Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United, and Liverpool have all reportedly expressed their desire to sign the striker.

The Premier League dream, or a lucrative detour?

According to Italian journalist Valter De Maggio, Osimhen’s ideal destination seems to be the Premier League, with Arsenal topping his list. However, his transfer fee is a staggering €130 million, which might make the Gunners hesitate. If a move to England falls through, De Maggio suggests Osimhen might be swayed by the financial muscle of clubs in the Middle East, particularly those in Saudi Arabia.

National team duty and a decision to be made

With the club season wrapped up, Osimhen is currently enjoying a well-deserved break. He’ll soon be rejoining the Nigerian national team for their upcoming World Cup qualifiers. But before he steps onto the international stage again, a big decision looms – will he become an Arsenal player, or will his talents be showcased elsewhere? Only time will tell what Osimhen’s future holds.
