13 October 2018 : D'Almeida Gains Third Cap In Algeria Defeat
Yeovil Town midfielder Sessi D'Almeida gained his third international cap on Friday night, three years after his first appearance for his country. The 22 year old had been called up by Benin and unlike his September trip, he managed to briefly get onto the pitch in their 2-0 defeat against Algeria for his first cap since he was on the books of his home town Bordeaux.

By the time D'Almedia got onto the pitch in the 80th minute, his country were 2-0 down in the game, and so he had little opportunity to change the outcome. The Group D qualifier at the Blida Stadium. Midway through the first half, Ramy Bensebaini opened the scoring, whilst a defensive error allowed Baghdad Bounedjah to double the lead.

The result has allowed Algeria the opportunity to move three points clear at the top of the AFCON Group D Qualification table. However, there will be an immediate opportunity for Benin to close that gap, as the two sides meet again on Tuesday at the Stade de l'Amitié in Cotonou, with Benin taking home advantage.

Final Score: Algeria 2 Benin 0.

Benin: (3-4-3)
Fabien Farnolle; Olivier Verdon, Salomon Junior, Khaled Adenon; Emmanuel Imorou, Seidou Barazé,Jordan Adéoti, Stéphane Sessegnon (Capt); David Djigla, Jodel Dossou, Steve Mounié.
