Mauritania national team coach Corentin Martins has embarked on a European and African tour ina bid to meet and discover players eligible to represent the country at senior stage. 

A tweet by Mauritania Football Federation (FFRIM) said that Martins was assessing a number of players in both Europe and Africa who qualify to represent Mauritania ahead of their 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying tie against Burundi. 

Martins has had a fine run since taking up the Mauritanian head coach role in 2014 and guided the team to 2019 AFCON in Egypt. They are currently second in Pool E of2021 AFCON qualifiers behind Morocco with four points. They are set to play Burundi in a doubleheader in late March. 

Martins started his managerial career in 2006, with lowly Quimper Cornouaille FC before acting caretaker for Brest as a replacement for sacked Alex Dupont in 2012. On 8 October 2014, Martins was appointed manager of Mauritania. In January 2019, he extended his contract until 2021.
