Ahead of Sierra Leone cracker, Benin set friendly with Zambia
Benin Football Federation has announced a friendly date with Zambia to be played at the Mathieu Kérékou Stadium Tuesday, June 8 in Cotonou.
Immediately after their preparation, they will be travelling to face Sierra Leone for their Group L decider.
The Confederation of African Football is yet to confirm any venue for the June 14 African Cup of Nations final qualifier.
A few days ago, head coach Michel Dussuyer announced a 23-man squad for the Sierra Leone decider in June, with midfielder Jodel Dossou, striker Steve Mourie, skipper Adenon Khaled and French club Dijon Saturnin Allagbe among those included.
Sierra Leone must win to reach the tournament for the first time in 25 years. Benin needed only a draw.
23 teams already qualified, and the winner between Sierra Leone and Benin will take the final spot to complete the 24 nations.
