MATCHS DU JOUR 13
The Confederation of African Football will decide in the case between Algeria and Morocco.
If the CHAN 2022 ended with the victory of Senegal over Algeria in the final, another match is not yet over. It pitted Morocco against the host country even before the competition began. Due to diplomatic tensions between the two countries and the closure of Algerian airspace to Moroccan flights, the Moroccan team had refused to travel to Algeria, if it could not do so directly via a plane of Royal Air Maroc, official partner of the Moroccan Football Federation. After the mediation and the media battle between the two countries, the Confederation of African Football will now look into this matter.
