Frustrations in African football is a matter the Confederation of African Football [CAF] needs to tackle once and for all.
Arsenal forward – Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang and his teammates [Gabon] endured a tumultuous time arrived at the Banjul International Airport in the early hours of Monday ahead of their 2021 AFCON qualifying match against Gambia.
The Gabonese team had no other option than to sleep at the airport for hours before they were cleared by immigration to gain entry into Gambia.
As the news of the unfair treatment went viral on many news outlets across the globe, CAF instituted an investigation into the issue.
But, this development from CAF did not deter Tanzania from meting out similar unfair treatment to Tunisia yesterday as the Carthage Eagles were also forced to use torche light in the dressing room in Dar es Salaam ahead of their game against the Taifa Stars.
The Carthage Eagles reported a power cut in their dressing room, a situation which forced them to use torche lights.
Tunisia won the first leg 1-0 in Radès last Friday, but despite the intimidation from Tanzania the Carthage Eagles joined 2019 finalists Senegal, holders Algeria as well as hosts Cameroon as the qualified teams for the 2021 Total Africa Cup of Nations after drawing 1-1 with the Taifa Stars.
