Oumar Tchomogo (born 7 January 1978 in Cotonou) is a Beninese footballer who plays as a forward for Rhône-Alpes Honneur Regional Ligue side Union Montilienne Sportive Football.[1]

Club career[edit]

Tchomogo began his career in 1996 with his local club ASPAC FC. He would move in 1998 to French side Grenoble Foot 38 where in three years he would score eleven goals from fifty three games. Following his departure from Grenoble in 2001, he would go on to play for ASOA Valence, En Avant Guingamp and Amiens.

In the summer of 2005, he would move to Portuguese side Vitória de Setúbal. During his time with the club, he would be a regular in the side under the management of Luís Norton de Matos. He would appear for the Sadinos in their very first Supertaça Cândido de Oliveira against Benfica. In January of the following year, he would leave Vitória for Baniyas SC.[2] His stay would prove to be unsuccessful as he would only manage two appearances in the entire season.

In the summer of 2006 he would return to Portugal, this time to play for Vitória de Guimarães. Following his spell with Vitória de Guimarães, he would leave for Portimonense where he would remain for one season.[3] Following his departure from Portimonense in the summer of 2008, he would go on to play for Chambéry, Al Kharaitiyat and ASOA Valence. In the summer of 2012, he signed for lower league French side Union Montilienne Sportive Football.[4]

International career[edit]

Tchomogo made his national team debut at the age of 20 in 1998. During his international career, he would help his nation reach their very first Africa Cup of Nations in 2004. He was selected by then manager Cecil Jones Attuquayefio for the finals. Benin's first ever participation in the Africa Cup of Nations saw them finish bottom of their group behind Morocco, Nigeria and South Africa.[5]

After Benin missed out on the 2006 edition, Benin qualified for the 2008 Africa Cup of Nations after finishing second in their qualification group behind Mali. Tchomogo scored two vital goals for Benin on the last match day of their qualification campaign against Sierra Leone to grant them access into the African Cup of Nations. He made the cut of the twenty three players who would be part of the squad to play at the tournament. Just like the 2004 edition, Benin would finish bottom of their group with no points from three games.[6] Tchomogo retired from international football in late 2009 after Benin failed to qualify for the 2010 Africa Cup of Nations.
