FIFA Day: Benin gets ready to face Zambia
Benin national team coach Michel Dussuyer is already sharpening his skills before the friendly game between the Squirrels and Zambia’s Chipolopolos.
On Monday,O7 October 2019, squirrels from Benin trained at 5pm on the BECEAO lawn. A total of ten squirrels attended the training session of French technician Michel Dussuyer as part of the preparations for FIFA Day on 13 October at the Charles de Gaulle stadium in Porto-novo. They are Uru Djalilou, Jérôme Bonou, Nabil Yarou, Patrick Sedjamè, Yannick Aguémon, Olivier Verdon, David kiki, Saturnin Allagbé, Salomon Junior and Steve Mounié, according to the BFF.
As a reminder, Benin should face Guinea Bissau on this FIFA day, but it turned out that the Guinean authorities served three different answers in two weeks. A first time favorable opinion, then refusal and finally yes. The Beninese Federation has therefore taken its responsibilities and accepted to play with Zambia at the expense of Guinea Bissau.
