The Benin Cheetahs are gathering in Cotonou, as part of the CAN 2023 qualifiers. The Beninese will face Mozambique on September 9 in Maputo, on the sixth day of the qualifying phases. Under the leadership of coach Gernot Rohr, the wild animals carried out their first training session this Monday, as part of this decisive shock. It was the General Mathieu Kérékou stadium in Cotonou which served as the setting for this first exchange between the Franco-German technician and his men.
With an almost complete group, the Franco-Beninese technician personally led the session which was held in a good atmosphere. The Cheetahs performed several exercises, ranging from warm-up to circulation workshops and ball conservation and many others. Exercises, part of which was open to the public.
Please note that 22 players out of the 25 summoned took part in this first training session. Oliver Verdon, Mattéo Ahlinvi and David Kiki are expected this Tuesday at the latest. As a reminder, the Mozambique-Benin match is scheduled for next Saturday in Maputo from 3 p.m. (GMT).
Third in Group L behind Mozambique, the Cheetahs must snatch victory to qualify for the final phase of the African Cup. A draw, however, will be enough for the Mambas to be on Ivorian soil.
