Super Eagles Recite Wrong National Anthem During World Cup Qualifier Against Benin, NFF Reacts

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has expressed anger at the Beninoise Football Federation’s mix-up in playing the old Nigerian national anthem before Monday’s FIFA World Cup qualifying match in Abidjan.

Recall that the Super Eagles of Nigeria shunned the ‘Nigeria We Hail Thee’ national anthem during a FIFA World Cup qualifier against Benin Republic on Monday, June 10.

The Nigeria men’s national football team recited the ‘Arise O Compatriot’ anthem at the Felix Houphouet-Boigny Stadium, Abidjan.
