Mauritania coach Corentin Martins pens new contract until 2021

Mauritania coach Corentin Martins has signed a new two-year contract extension which will see him remain as head coach until 2021.

The 49-year new deal comes after leading the country to the Africa Cup of Nations finals for the first time in history, a few months ago.

Mauritania, a country in northwest Africa covered almost completely by the Sahara desert, came from behind to beat Botswana 2-1 with two goals from Ismael Diakite, as they book their 2019 AFCON ticket.

The Al-Murabitun under the French man was named as the National Team of the Year at the recent Confederation of African Football awards.

A draw for Mauritania in their final Nations Cup qualifier away to Burkina Faso in March will see them finish top of Group I.

Angola and Botswana are the other two teams in the group.
