In Abidjan to support the national team, Michael Poté also reacted to this double confrontation of the Beninese wild animals. And the striker hopes that his younger brothers will snatch the 6 points of victory.

There are going to be two big matches, we have to get back to winning ways. We are left with two great performances, but we must not believe that this is a given, this is something completely different. It's good, I see the morale is there, I watch the training, it's fine. I hope there will be two good positive outcomes. We expect a lot of Beninese people here, there is a good community here, they will be present at the stadium to support the Guépards“, he declared in comments relayed by Megasports.
