    Experienced but long clubless captain Stephan Sessegnon in Benin camp for the same reasons and caveat an Ahmed Musa is in Nigeria’s camp. But tribal bias and religious hatred has made some people swallow hot coals over a practice that has always been there since ages past….LMAO. Bigots who cannot see beyond their noses….LMAO. I even thought by now, with all their initial rants, someone would have gone to evict Musa from the camp and issued the coach their long desired and anticipated sack letter…LMAO

    • Dr. Drey 3 years ago

      The experienced forward, who will be 37 in June and made his international debut in 2004, has been named by Benin as “guest player” for Saturday’s showdown as he has been without a club since last year.

      “Will Stephane Sessegnon play? I cannot say, but for certain his presence in the group is very important,” insisted Benin coach Michel Dussuyer. (C) SCORENigeria
