Squirrels drop Omotoyosi



coach Manuel Amoros ahead of their World Cup qualifier against Algeria on March 23.

The 24-year-old striker will replace Benin’s goal hunter Razak Omotoyossi of Zamalek, who was dropped for being out of competitive football following the suspension of the Egypt Premier League.

Benin are currently leaders of Group H with four points ahead of Algeria and Mali on three points each.

“The arrival of Gestede is hope for the entire team and we believe he’ll be able to inspire others to work harder than usual,” coach Amoros said.

Sunderland’s Stephane Sessegnon will take centre stage as his side attempts to make history in qualifying for their first Fifa World Cup.
