Player to watch: Paul Onuachu

The last time Benin and Nigeria met was during the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers, and Nigeria emerged victorious by a lone goal, thanks to Paul Onuachu's stoppage-time winner.

Interestingly, that was Onuachu's first career goal for Nigeria in a competitive fixture. The 30-year-old has been in sensational form since he returned from a six-week injury layoff in April. He has scored eight times in his last seven appearances for club and country, with an assist.

It's also worth noting that Onuachu has scored just three goals for Nigeria, so he'll fancy his chances against a Benin side that kept just two clean sheets in their last 17 matches.
