THE Squirrels of Benin will have a comfortable stay in Kampala after soccer governing body FUFA confirmed they would fully abide by a memorandum of understanding made before Cranes lost 4-1 in Cotonou in June.
The Benin soccer federation took up all the hotel costs of the Cranes in Cotonou, with FUFA promising to reciprocate. Although the players claimed they were housed in a slum, FUFA was happy with the deal.
Benin, who arrive on Friday with a contingent of 25, have been booked in the three-star Regency Hotel in Bakuli.
World soccer governing body FIFA at the start of the 2010 World Cup qualifiers ruled that visiting sides should fully cater for their accommodation costs.
This followed a string of complaints about sub-standard hotels in the the previous arrangement where the hosts were supposed to pay the visitors' bills.
The Cranes took an early Eugene Sepuuya lead in Benin before crashing to defeat.
Hapless goalkeeper Denis Onyango blamed the defeat on witchcraft. He is suspended from this weekendâ€™s game.
