17 year old Guinean footballer Aly Soumah has died after he was involved in a road accident on his way back to Guinea.

The young lad had traveled with the rest of his mates to Dar Es Salaam-Tanzania for the Under 17 AFCON currently taking place in the country after participating in a preparatory camp in Jadida-Morocco but unfortunately he was left out the Guinea final 21 man squad by his coaches.

The decision not to pick him meant  the lad could not longer participate in the tournament and he was subsequently sent home before Guinéa’s first game on Monday against Cameroon.

Unfortunately for the young lad’s family and the football world,Aly was involved in a road accident at the Kindia road in Guinea and died few hours later.

Aftering accepting a 2 nil defeat against Cameroon on Monday Guinea will approach the rest of their games in Tanzania with just 20 player.
