COVID-19 scare in Benin camp


Benin Republic head coach Michel Dussuyer says his team is feeling good and ready to face Nigeria in the mouth-watering 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier on Saturday at the Charles de Gaulle stadium in Porto-Novo following a COVID-19 scare in their camp.

Dussuyer, in an interview with, said a member of the team tested positive for coronavirus, but added that others had been tested and were ready to battle the three-time African champions.

“My group is feeling good. We always remain vigilant with the COVID because we had a case in the workforce that was put in isolation right away. Otherwise, the rest of the troop is fine. We did the tests this morning (Thursday). The atmosphere is good, the work is good.”

The Squirrels were handed a huge boost after Jordan Adeoti and Sessi d’Almeida, who both missed out of the team’s training session, recovered in time to face the Super Eagles on Saturday (today).

“Jordan played Tuesday night with his club; he played 90 minutes. It was just scrubbing for him. Sessi just needed to breathe, rest his thigh a bit, but nothing serious, he will be there on the pitch.”

Benin occupy second spot in Group L with seven points from four games.
