CAN 2023 (Q): the list of Mozambique against Benin with Geny Catamo

The national coach of Mozambique, Chiquinho Conde, revealed this Monday his list of players selected for the 6th day of the CAN 2023 qualifiers against Benin. A group of 25 players with star Geny Catamo.

In search of the second ticket from group L, qualifier for CAN 2023, the final phase of which will take place from January 13 to February 11, 2024 in Ivory Coast, Mozambique and Benin will face each other next September in Maputo. The two teams will engage in a fratricidal duel, counting for the sixth day of the playoffs.

Second in their group after their victory against Rwanda (2-0) on the previous day, the Mambas only need a draw to qualify for the competition. Held in check by Senegal (1-1) last June, the Cheetahs must take all three points in the game to be on the Ivorian soil. Woe then to the vanquished.
