FIFA Day: Madagascar's list against Benin

World Cup 2026 (Q): the list of Madagascar against the Comoros and Mali

The national coach of Madagascar, Rakotondrabe Romuald Félix, unveiled this Friday the list of players selected for the 3rd and 4th days of the 2026 World Cup qualifiers.

Madagascar will also play the third and fourth days of the 2026 World Cup qualifiers in the Africa zone next June. The Bareas will host the Comoros on June 7 and Mali four days later at the Loftus Versfeld stadium in South Africa. This is due to the non-approval by CAF and FIFA of Malagasy stadiums.

For these two matches, the national coach, Rakotondrabe Romuald Félix, called on a group of 25 players. In the list, we find the Malagasy striker Loïc Lapoussin who plays for Union Saint-Gilloise in Belgium. His compatriots Julien Pontgerard from Stade Brestois and Tamby Florent from AJ Auxerre are also there. Lacking playing time in his club, central defender Berajo is left out of this group, which also includes new players.
