Gabon: Didier Ovono wants to play the AFCON at 38

The players are probably glued to the phone waiting for the call of the coach. With only a few days to go before the publication of the lists for the African Cup of Nations, some players are still hoping to be part of their selection. This is notably the case of Gabonese goalkeeper Didier Ovono. "Everything is possible! That's the beauty of this sport. In relation to my career, I always say that a 1960 Ferrari costs more than a current Ferrari. You know what I mean! If you combine experience and talent in this position, you can play for a long time to come," says the 38-year-old goalkeeper.

Ovono, who currently plays for French club Foyer Trelaze, has won 150 caps for Gabon: "I'm at Trelaze now, and tomorrow I can be in the dressing room with Aubameyang. I'm here in Trelaze, tomorrow I can be in the dressing room with Aubameyang. Why can't we dream if we give ourselves the means?" he said.

There is still a glimmer of hope. Especially since the national coach of Gabon had traveled to France to discuss with the former captain of the "Panthers". "I am an optimist by nature. If the coach has seen fit to travel to discuss with me, it is that in his head, he has a minimum of consideration. There is a possibility that I will be called up. I have prepared my family for the possibility of being at the AFCON," concluded Didier Ovono.

Gabon is in group C with Comoros, Ghana and Morocco.
