Amputee football: Moroccan players trapped after the AFCON in Tanzania

Amputee football: Moroccan players trapped after the AFCON in Tanzania

The Moroccan national amputee football team has not yet returned from Tanzania, where it participated in its first ever African Cup of Nations (AFCON). The players are still stuck in Dar Es Salaam. This is due to the closure of the borders decided by Morocco following the appearance of the Omicron variant. And despite the efforts of the Embassy of the Kingdom of Morocco in Tanzania. The latter has sent correspondence to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to facilitate the return of the selection. Requests that remain unanswered at this stage.

Contacted by Sport News Africa, one of the players, Abdelouahab Hammoumi regrets the situation. He says they are still staying in the hotel. They received a visit from the Moroccan ambassador to Tanzania and Uganda, Abdelilah Benryane.

"The ambassador told us that he has sent a letter to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, but he has not yet received a reply. "All the teams participating in this African competition in Tanzania have returned to their countries, except for the members of our national team," regrets this player.

"All the players, technical and administrative staff are upset by this difficult situation, and most of them have professional, health or family obligations, or must return quickly to their places of study," adds another player.

In Tanzania, Morocco finished 5th in the competition. This guarantees them a place at the next World Cup in Turkey in 2022.
