The Foxes Beat the Squirrels


These photos from the Benin v. Algeria soccer match a couple of weeks ago show the local fans after Benin took a 1 – 0 lead. Unfortunately, the lead didn’t last long and the Foxes went on to beat the Squirrels 3 – 1. (Aside: I have no idea why Benin’s soccer team is named the Squirrels. I’ve never once seen a squirrel in this country.)

Benin’s national soccer team, The Squirrels, played a World Cup qualifying match against Algeria in Porto Novo several weeks ago. The crowd was rowdy and decked out for the home team.
