Considered to be the biggest African Football Mass by many football pundits. Coupled with the ongoing COVID-19 virus and the development of the Omicron virus many, European football decision makers have been expressing uncertainty on the holding of the 33rd edition of the TotalErnegies AFCON 2021 on Cameroonian soil.
The latest information per French outlet RMC holds that, reflexions are ongoing in the ranks of European clubs on whether to proceed with releasing players for the African most celebrated football festival or not, due to fresh threats presented by the Covid-19 pandemic.
However, with the presence of the official AFCON’s trophy on a mini-tour across the national territory in Cameroon.
The country’s readiness to host the tournament is no longer a topic to debate.
Doctor Patrice Motsepe’s statement “We meet in Cameroon, on January 9” during the last CAF extraordinary meeting in Cairo to the entire Africa.
Adding, to the Omicron and covid-19 threats is the disappointing and disapproval of some English top tiers to liberate their numerous African players expected to part-take in the black soccer rally.
According to the English Premier League, governing body, the participation of these African players in the football mass will equally necessitate a strict and severe quarantine upon their return.
However, 25 days to the holding of the prestigious competition, preparations have heightened, with the presence of the Cairo-based football governing body’s Secretary General, Veron Mosengo-Omba on an inspection visit to the major stadiums including the likes of the 60,000 sitting capacity Olembe stadiums alongside other lodging facilities.
