Sierra Leone (1) Vs (0) Benin | Full Match AFCON Qualifier 15-06-2021
The Leone Stars of Sierra Leone squares up against the Squirrels of Benin for a make or break Africa Cup of Nations qualifying encounter.
The Group L fixture, initially billed for Tuesday, March 30, at the National Stadium, Freetown did not take place owing to a COVID-19 controversy.
The match was again postponed from Monday, June 14 to today June 15, 2021 after several Sierra Leone players tested positive for COVID-19.
Nonetheless, the two teams will now square up against one another at the General Lansana Conte Stadium in a game that will determine the last team to secure a place for Cameroon 2022.
A 1-0 win will be enough for Leone Stars to qualify, but should Michel Dussuyer’s Squirrels – who just need a draw to qualify – score, John Keister’s men will need a two-goal winning margin to qualify and end their 26-year Afcon hiatus.
