Moussa Latoundji (born 13 August 1978 in Porto-Novo) is a Beninese former footballer.


Latoundji played in more than 100 league matches for FC Energie Cottbus.[1]

After breaking his kneecap in 2004[2] he was forced to end his career.[3]

International career[edit]

He was part of the Beninese 2004 African Nations Cup team,[4] which finished bottom of its group in the first round of competition, thus failing to secure qualification for the quarter-finals. Latoundji achieved the distinction, however, of scoring Benin’s only goal. He did this in the ninetieth minute of his team’s final game in the competition, a 2–1 victory for Nigeria.
