CAN 2021 (Q): Benin is getting closer

Good operation for Benin. Opposed to Lesotho this Saturday in Porto Novo on the occasion of the third day of the qualifiers for CAN Cameroon 2021, the Squirrels held their rank by winning 1-0. This success allows them to consolidate their 2nd place in the group with 4 points ahead of Sierra Leone and 5 over their victim of the day that they will face again on Tuesday away. The men of Michel Dussuyer even return to a point of the Nigerian leader, author of a huge disappointment on Friday against Sierra Leone (4-4).

Dominators from the start despite the absences of executives like Stéphane Sèssegnon, Jordan Adéoti, Olivier Verdon, Cèbio Soukou and Mickael Poté, the locals approached the opposing goal and Dossou, served by Adénon, played with his vis-à-vis in the surface to beat the goalkeeper with a powerful pointy (24th). A logical opening for the Clermont winger who then missed two great opportunities to make the break.

Almost non-existent offensively in the first period, Lesotho took advantage of a loosening of the premises to regain the hair of the animal for a good 20 minutes after returning from the locker room, but without really worrying the Beninese who then finished the game better, like this header from Mounié on the post in added time. A precious success which allows the Squirrels to take an important step towards the CAN.
