The Morocco and Guinea World Cup qualifier will not go ahead. A coup has reportedly been committed in Conakry, the capital of Guinea. Both countries would meet on Mondays.
The political situation in Guinea is unstable and, according to local media, a coup has been committed in that country. Military personnel allegedly arrested President Alpha Conde, although it is claimed that an attack on the presidential palace has just turned off. In Conakry there is a lot of shots and thats why Moroccos players have been put to safety.
“Were in the hotel and hear shots all day,” says Moroccan national coach Vahid Halilhodzic to LÉquipe. “We are waiting for permission to go to the airport. Right now were stranded.”
“Theres a plane waiting for us, but we dont have permission to leave yet. It takes about fifteen minutes to an hour to get to the airport. If you hear shots, safety is not guaranteed.”
