Equatorial Guinea Football Federation has appointed Sebastien Migne, the former coach of Kenya’s national football team, as the new manager of the ‎Nzalang Nacional ahead of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

The federation says it hopes the Frenchman’s experience will take the national team to a new level.

The 46-year-old has signed an open contract in which any party is free to terminate the deal at any time after six months.

Migne said he was taking over a “good team”:

I do not promise results but hard work. I can’t say that I already know all the players of the national team…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.
