Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Mario Lemina were not lined up for the Gabon-Ghana group match on Friday evening. In a message posted on its Twitter account, the Gabonese federation announces that the tests of Arsenal and Nice players (note: but also Axel Meyé), tested positive for Covid-19 just before the start of the Coupe d’ Africa of nations and absent in the victory against the Comoros (1-0) last Monday, “have heart damage“.

CAF (African Football Confederation) didn’t want to take any risks“, specifies the Gabonese federation. For his part, a member of the staff of the Panthers told AFP that these three players retained some traces of Covid despite a negative test the day before. Coach Patrice Neveu, on the other hand, was of course on the bench, at the Omnisports stadium in Yaoundé. Positive on Thursday, he tested negative on Friday morning.
