“It looks like we’re back in the 90s.” The formula is signed by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Sunday evening, and until Monday morning, the Gabonese striker and his teammates were forced to wait long hours at Banjul airport upon their arrival in Gambia. For some unknown reason.

On Facebook, the Gabonese federation relayed the images of the players “sequestered” by the Gambian authorities. Aubameyang, he tried to challenge CAF via Twitter. “I just want to know why The Gambia keeps our passports for hours. They keep us at the airport, are we hostage or what? Are you going to close your eyes? “, Annoyed the Arsenal striker.

Finally, after an impossible night, the Gabonese were finally able to take the bus to their hotel. It was then almost 6 a.m. And the kickoff of the meeting between The Gambia and the Panthers is scheduled at 6 p.m. local time (5 p.m. in France).

Aubameyang prefers to see the positive: “Thanks for the extra motivation,” concluded the Gunner. Gabon are currently leading their group in the CAN qualifiers, three points ahead of Gambia. A success on the field of the Scorpions would almost certainly be decisive for Gabon.
