Benin are scheduled to face off with Gabon in an international friendly match in Europe on Tuesday.

The Squirrels, who were knocked out of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualification (CAF) second round two years ago, were not in action over the weekend.

They will take on a Gabon side which suffered a 3-0 defeat to Morocco in the World Cup Qualification third round match in Casablanca on Saturday.

Oumar Tchomogo, the Benin coach, is using the match against Gabon as preparation for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier against Togo which will be played next March.

Tchomogo named a strong squad for the encounter which will be played at the Stade D'Honneur Mallemort in Mallemort, France. Kick-off is at 16h00 CAT.

Benin's Full Squad:

Goalkeepers: Fabien Farnolle (Yeni Malatyaspor, Turkey), Saturnin Allagbe (Niort, France)

Defenders: Khaled Adénon (Amiens, France), Cédric Hountondji (Gazélec Ajaccio, France), David Kiki (Brest, France), Rodrigue Fassinou (Aspac, Benin), Moses Adilehou (Levadiakos, Greece)
