Benin head coach Michel Dussuyer will be confident of guiding his side to victory against a wounded African Wild Dogs side.

Meanwhile, Guinea-Bissau succumbed to a 2-0 defeat to Cameroon in their maiden group match which was played on Tuesday.

FK Senica midfielder Zezinho is the captain of the African Wild Dogs and he will be looking to lead his side to victory over Benin.

Guinea-Bissau head coach Baciro Cande will be hoping to mastermind a victory over a dangerous Squirrels side.

This will be the second encounter between Benin and Guinea-Bissau with the Squirrels having won their first meeting.
