“The local Mourabitounes will play a double confrontation with their counterparts from Mali, on Monday August 15 and Thursday August 18 at Cheikha Boïdiya, in preparation for the last qualifying round at CHAN”. It is through this press release, published on its official page that the Mauritanian Football Federation announced the invitation addressed to the Malian Football Federation (Femafoot) for two preparation matches between the local Eagles of Nouhoum Diané and the local Mourabitounes .

These two meetings are part of the preparation for the second and final round of the playoffs. Malians and Mauritanians are currently preparing for the second and final round of playoffs against Sierra Leone and Guinea Bissau respectively. The first legs are scheduled between August 26 and 28, while the return matches will be played between September 2 and 4.

This invitation from Mauritania comes a few days after the publication by the coach of the local Eagles, Nouhoum Diané, of the list of 50 players shortlisted for the CAN campaign. “It’s good news, the double confrontation with Mauritania will be a real test for us. Until then, we had to make do with friendly matches against local teams. The two friendly matches against the Mauritanians will help me a lot in the run-up to the second round against Sierra Leone. The group is calm and we are ready,” said Nouhoum Diané.

The first vice-president of Femafoot, Kassoum Coulibaly “Yambox” is also delighted with the choice of our country by the Mauritanians for two preparation matches. “We are very happy with this invitation, the two friendly matches will be very beneficial for each of the two selections. Mauritania and Mali maintain good relations in all areas. We hope that this will continue for the happiness of the two countries”, underlined Kassoum Coulibaly “Yambox”. The two friendly matches will take place at the Cheikha Ould Boidiya stadium, located about 3 km from Nouakchott, the Mauritanian capital.
