Benin will be without their captain Stéphane Sessègnon in today’s clash against Ghana.
The midfielder will be serving a suspension after receiving a red card in the team’s final Cup of Nations qualifier against Algeria.
Coach Michel Dussuyer will have to approach the game without his key man.
“Of course the absence of certain players in the team is affecting us but we know our first game is against Ghana and we are determined to give a good account of our game and we have prepared for that so that the absence won’t affect us” Michel told reporters in his pre-match presser.
Sessègnon is one of the highly dependable players for the Benin team at this year’s Cup of Nations tournament.
