Mauritania Mauritania FA Extends Amir Abdou Contract Until 2026

Following Mauritania’s outstanding performance at the TotalEnergies CAF Africa Cup of Nations Côte d’Ivoire 2023, the Mauritanian Football Federation has decided to extend head coach Amir Abdou’s contract until 2026.

For the first time in its history, the Mauritius national team advanced to the TotalEnergies CAF AFCON knockout phase. However, after losing 1-0 to Cape Verde, they were ousted in the round of eight.

The Mauritanian Football Federation made an official announcement on Thursday, February 8, announcing that coach Amir Abdou’s contract had been extended.
