Head coach Finidi George has said the Super Eagles cannot throw in the towel in their quest to qualify for 2026 FIFA World Cup after a shock loss to Benin Republic.
The Eagles suffered their first defeat in Group C after going down 2-1 to Gernot Rohr-led Cheetahs of Benin Republic in Abidjan on Monday.
Raphael Onyedika gave the Eagles the lead before Benin fought back to secure the win.
The defeat place the Eagles in fifth place on three points while Benin Republic go top on seven points.
Speaking on the disappointing defeat, Finidi said:”There’s no special formula to win we have to see how the players will start a new season now and see how we can get the beat out of the players.
“Everybody must be committed and I believe with commitment we will win games. I believe we are going to win games and if we can win games the battle will still be there.
“We can’t throw in the towel because we’ve had only three points, we have to find a way to get these players back in a way for them to perform.”
The Eagles’ next fixture is in March 2025 when they will take on Rwanda and Zimbabwe.
