Fans have demanded the sack of coach Finidi George after the Super Eagles lost 2-1 to Benin Republic.

Cotonou, the capital of neighbouring Republic of Benin erupted in joy following the shock 2-1 win over the Super Eagles of Nigeria in their 2026 FIFA world Cup qualifier at the Felix Houphouët Boigny Stadium in Abidjan.

“This  was a real miracle,” Beninese foremost journalist, Elvis Dedjinou Zanclan , told NationSport after the match.“Two games won successively, first again Rwanda and  now, the super Eagles; this is unbelievable.”

Zanclan then added: “My point of view  at the end of the match  was that the Nigerian players  thought the game  was won  before the kick -off. I think Finidi’s team is the first Nigerian side to lose to Benin in historyREAD FULL STORY HERE>>>CLICK HERE TO CONTINUE READING>>>.

In a  report by Sahara Reporters , many of  Nigerian micro blog users  vented their anger on the former Ajax Amsterdam’s winger.

A commentator, Samstar said, “Finidi George is just a clueless coach with a very big head. Please sack him now and also jail him for stressing all Nigerians #SoarSuperEagles.” 

Another analyst, Buchi Laba regretted being among those who called for George’s appointment few months ago.

He wrote: “I pushed heavily for Finidi George to get the job. I’m a very stupid person. Never ever take any advice coming from me. I no get sense.”

Tremendous scare in the Scotland-Hungary of the Euro Cup. When he was in the 68th minute, Hungarian striker Barnabás Varga suffered a severe blow to the head that left him dazed on the grass. At first it was said that he was unconscious, although German television Magenta stated that the footballer had not lost consciousness.

With the footballer on the grass everyone became alarmed. One of his teammates was the first to alert the medical services, who immediately treated the player on the field. To prevent the cameras from taking images of what was happening, several members of the Euro Cup organization covered the area where Varga was being treated with blankets.

After several seconds of tension, the health workers evacuated the footballer on a stretcher, who was taken to a health center. «Barnabás Varga’s condition is stable. The Hungarian national team player is currently in one of the hospitals in Stuttgart. We will inform you if there are any new developments,” the Hungarian Football Federation wrote in X.

Institute Narrowly Beats Olympic in National Basketball League Semifinal Opener

Published

By


Institute suffered more than necessary. He wanted to finish before the buzzer sounded and had to work until the final seconds to put the National Basketball League semifinal series at 1-0. With his heart on his sleeve, when he was able to settle it in advance, Lucas Victoriano’s team beat Olympic de La Banda in a packed Ángel Sandrín stadium by 89 to 85 and ruled.

On Tuesday, from 7:30 p.m., again in Alta Córdoba, the second duel of the series will be played for a place in the final.

Instituto started badly and ended the game badly. But in the middle, he played at a high level, especially in the second quarter (he won it 29-16), at the highest level he can develop. He relied on defense, had judgment in attack and took advantages that in the closing allowed him to keep the victory despite the mistakes against a team from Santiago that fought until the end and had a chance to win the first match.

Roberto Acuña led Albirrojo’s reaction from the second chapter. El Toro took control of the fight under the rings on both sides, and closed the night with 16 points, 6 rebounds and two blocks, a key in the end of the match. Along with the pivot, Mauro Cosolito stood out, with 11 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists, and Bautista Lugarini with 12 points and 11 rebounds.

The Institute party

Led by former albirrojo Nicolás Romano, Olympic dominated from the opening jump. Romanó opened with two triples. Furthermore, the visit closed the painting to the Institute, which had a hard time writing down. Quite the opposite of La Banda’s team, which had an attack with variations, ahead 17-7 in just over five minutes.

The Glory mark was weak and Olympic, shooting with high effectiveness, scored 13 points. The entry of Roberto Acuña gave strength and power to Victoriano’s team near the rim. The Instituto defense improved and reduced the score to 20-24 by closing the first chapter.

Olimpico started the second quarter with a 5-0 (29-20) in 1’10, but the Alta Córdoba team, with the experience of Nicolás Copello and Mauro Cosolito, responded with a 14-0 in just over two minutes to take over the score 34-29.

Instituto defended like on its best nights and took the Santiago team out of the game, who stayed close from the free kick line. Victoriano’s team won in collective firmness since the energy went into halftime ahead 49-40. READ FULL STORY HERE>>>CLICK HERE TO CONTINUE READING>>>

The visit narrowed again, 47-52 in 2’40, but Instituto responded with its defense, stole a couple of balls in the first line, ran and scored 10:57-47 a few minutes later. Olympic was also accurate in three-pointers, led by Pato Tabarez, and narrowed the difference again until they were three down: 54-57.

La Gloria once again relied on defense, regained calm in the attack, and won the third episode 66-57.

Instituto brought out its passing game, with Cosolito marking the times, and extended it to 15: 76-61 at 4’20 of the last period. Olimpico fought it off with conversions from Tabarez and Romano, narrowing it to 71-78 with four minutes left.

La Gloria returned to score 11 (82-71) with a triple from Vildoza, although Tabarez was intractable and the visit was one down, 81-82 with 1’17 on the clock, taking advantage of the fact that Albirrojo rushed when they should have played calmer .

“Capi” Vildoza scored another triple and Instituto, suffering, was left with the victory.
