The Equatorial Guinean Football Federation (Feguifut) has appointed Sebastien Migne as the head coach after parting ways with former coach Angel Lopez.

Lopez quit his job just one year after taking over, saying he needed a new challenge.

His decision comes after Equatorial Guinea edged South Sudan 2-1 on aggregate earlier this month in the preliminary round of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers.

Migne, signed an open contract in which any party is free to terminate the deal at any time after six months.

“I do not promise results but hard work. I can’t say that I already know all the players of the national team,” Migne said.

“I have been fortunate to follow the friendly that Nzalang had with Togo in France and I can say that I have a good team.

“My plan is to meet with all the coaches in the country to convey my work philosophy. It is the way we can do a team work.”

His first games as coach will be Nations Cup qualifiers away to Tanzania on 15 November and at home to Tunisia four days later.

Feguifut president Gustavo Ndong Edu Akumu is pleased with Migne’s record in Africa.

Migne has also coached Congo Brazzaville and worked with Claude Le Roy in Oman, Syria and DR Congo.

“We welcome you to Equatorial Guinea and wish you all the luck in the world so that this new adventure is full of joys,” Akumu told Feguifut’s website.
