The Squirrels of Benin and Leon Star are supposed to play a rescheduled match on June 24, 2021, for the Group L Qualifier.

Group L’s final Qualifying match was called off in March after the visitors (Benin) refused to play in protest against five of their player’s being tested positive for Covid-19 in Freetown.

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) confirmed in April that the Appeal Body upheld the decision of the organizing committee to postpone the fixture to the June 2021 International window following Sierra Leone’s appeal.
