Guinea Bissau’s Head Coach had failed to show up for the traditional post-match press conference interactions after a controversial VAR decision cancelled a late-minute equalizer from Mama Baldé.
According to information gathered from a CRTV reporter on the scene of action, it appears he was tested covid positive but his assistance failed to participate in the conference.
Mohamed Salah scored his first goal in six games for Egypt, to give them a one-nil edge over Guinea Bissau in Garoua on Saturday and their first points of the Nations Cup.
Mama Balde thought he had scored with a screamer from a tight angle to level in the 82nd minute. But the referee after consulting the pitch-side VAR monitor decided he had fouled a defender in the build-up to the goal.
The delighted Egyptian players celebrated after Salah’s goal put them ahead in the second half. However, Djurtus’ Jefferson Encada was challenged by Omar Mohamed Marmoush of Egypt.
