Sierra Leone Vs Benin
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.
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.
