After a scare from Stephane Sessegnon’s early goal for Benin, the Super Eagles came from behind to get their 2021 AFCON qualifying campaign to a positive start with a 2-1 win at the Akwa Ibom Stadium in Uyo.Victor Osimhen converted from the penalty spot on the stroke of half-time while Samuel Kalu struck just after the hour mark to complete the comeback for Nigeria, while Sierra Leone and Lesotho’s drew 1-1, which makes Nigeria top the group.Rohr indeed said winning the 2021 AFCON for Nigeria would make him the most excited person.Rohr who spoke at a post-match conference in Uyo after his team came from behind to defeat the Squirrels of Benin Republic 2-1 said winning AFCON 2021 was a huge desire.“It will be exciting for me to win the 2021 AFCON title with Nigeria. That’s my desire, and I will be the most excited.“So, winning today (Wednesday) is just the beginning. I can’t be excited until we win the title in 2021,” he said.Rohr, who said Benin Republic had a good team, also noted that the Nigerian side had a good game in the second half.“The Super Eagles had a lot of scoring opportunities, but they failed to convert all of them.”He however pointed out that the game’s opening goal, scored by the Squirrels’ captain, Sessegnon, in the second minute, was a big shock.“In the second half, we played a very good match, ‘one-touch two-touch’, and we have good wingers. We had a lot of opportunities, and with the changes we made, we did very well. It is good for us.”Speaking also, the Super Eagles’ team captain, Ahmed Musa, said the match was “a tough game for our team, even though we won.’’He added that the Nigerian side gave their best to prevail over the visitors.On his part, the Head Coach of Benin, Michelle Dussuyer, noted that his team played very well in the first half.He however pointed out that the 45th minute penalty kick his team conceded gave more confidence to the Super Eagles.Also, Sessegnon acknowledged that while the game was not a bad one for his team, the Nigerian side played better.The Super Eagles will now try to build on Wednesday’s result when they visit Lesotho on Sunday while Benin host Sierra Leone.

Week 13 began with a surprising result on Thursday when the Cowboys snuck past the Saints, 13-10, flexing their defensive muscle to prevent New Orleans from clinching the NFC South. Two other teams can punch their tickets to the playoffs this week. The Rams can clinch the NFC West with a win or a loss by the Seahawks, and the Chiefs will need a few things to go their way, starting with a victory of their own. They will also need — keep up here — a Dolphins loss or tie, Colts loss, Texans loss and Titans loss or tie, OR a loss by the Dolphins, Colts and Texans and either a Ravens and Bengals loss or a Ravens and Chargers loss. Short version: a lot has to happen for Kansas City to earn a playoff berth. But it’s not out of the realm of possibility.

Cranes in action against Nambia earlier.

The KCCA forward had missed the previous match against Namibia due to an ankle sprain and is expected to at least make the bench.Derrick Nsibambi will again lead the attack, with the hope that Shaban can come in to strengthen the team in the second half.Desabre urged his players to conclude their campaign with a win. “Our target is now to finish third in the group. We want the maximum points against Cote d’Ivoire,” he said.The coach, who has coached in Ivory Coast before, said his local knowledge will come useful in the Monday clash. “I know the league in Cote d’Ivoire because I was there for two years. I know some of the players. We didn’t qualify for the quarter finals because of some weaknesses but I will ask my players to continue playing good football.”Uganda Cranes will play in their final group B match against Ivory Coast, having lost 3-1 to Zambia and 1-0 to Nambia to fall out of the running for a place in the knockout stage.“The game against Cote D’Ivoire is not a friendly match. We are demanding the same positive energy from the players like in the earlier two games at CHAN 2018 as we finish up the group games on Monday,” he told his players after training.STARTING LINE UP 19-Watenga Isma (GK), 14-Nicholas Wadada, 8-Madoi Aggrey, 5-Mujuzi, 4- Muwanga (Capt), 21-Taddeo, 23-Milton Karisa, 3-Muleme Isaac, 11-Derrick Nsibambi, 15-Sadam Juma,17-KyambaddeSTANDINGSZambia 2 2 0 0 5 1 6 – qualifiedNamibia 2 2 0 0 2 0 6 – qualifiedUganda 2 0 0 2 1 4 0Ivory Coast 2 0 0 2 0 3 0#TotalCHAN2018 Tweets Share on: WhatsApp
A shorthanded Nelson Eagles squad proved to be no match for high-power Okanagan competition as the Heritage City Spring Hoop squad dropped four games a the Kelowna Minor Basketball Association (KMBA) tournament this past weekend in the Central Okanagan City.”We were short-handed and over-matched physically for the most part but the heart was there and guys were positive and competed the entire time on the court,” said Eagles coach Jeremy Phelan.”Everyone improved a lot over the weekend.”The Eagles lost 69-41 to host KMBA to finish fourth in the tournament.Josh Matosevic suffered a knee injury earlier in the tournament and which slowed the Nelson star during the game.Nelson opened the tournament on fire on the backs of Matosevic and Rob Dixon and were tied 41-41 before Dixon committed his fifth and disqualifying foul. Center Stryder Scott fouled out earlier, and without Dixon’s leadership at the point, the Eagles ended up falling 62-45. Matosevic was mostly unstoppable, registering 35 of the Eagles’ 45 points, including six conversions from behind the arc.The Eagles played a mature Hornets team from Oliver immediately following the loss to KMBA.The Hornets smothered the Eagles with full court pressure and finished the first half leading 34-17, and would eventually walk away with the 74-40 win.Again, Matosevic was the primary point-getter with 12. DIxon scored 12 points, including 10 from the charity stripe and Scott had a breakout game with six points, on 4-of-6 free-throwing shooting.The following morning the Eagles faced the Salmon Arm Synergy Under-17 basketball club.From the outset it appeared an evening of rest had re-energized the Eagles as they sped to a 4-1 lead over the Synergy.Matosevic led the charge scoring 12 points, until succumbing to a knee injury from an opposing player’s challenge of a three point attempt.Matosevic did not return as the Eagles faced a 28-18 halftime deficit. With Matosevic sidelined for the Eagles, scoring was sparse as Dixon was harassed with an onslaught of double-teams and pressure defense.Eventually the Eagles would fall 59-23 in the final round-robin game. Scott contributed five points, with Dixon and Jared Martin each managing three points. Matosevic, Dixon, and Scott claimed game MVP awards throughout the tournament.
Things have not really gone according to Hoyle this Kootenay International Junior Hockey League season for the Nelson Leafs.However, there’s nothing like a strong playoff run to erase some of those bad memories that materialized from the regular season.The Leafs gave the fans a brief taste of optimism when the Green and White snapped a late-season losing skid by capturing the final three games to secure third place in KIJHL’s Murdoch Division.
