Set Back For Angola’s Team As Their First Choice Goal Keeper Missing Out

CAF Bars Angola’s First Choice Goalkeeper From Playing Against Super Eagles, Star Midfielder Leaves Camp

Neblu, Angola’s first-choice goalkeeper, is not qualified to play in the quarterfinal match against Nigeria at the present Africa Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast, according to the Confederation of African Football (CAF), which has informed Angola of this fact.

A foul committed by Neblu for handling the ball outside the box resulted in the player being sent off during the round of 16 victory over Namibia. In the beginning, it was anticipated that he would miss two games; however, the CAF has now limited his absence to only one game.

It was a professional foul, not one that can be classified as violence conduct or reckless that has the potential to harm the career of the opposing player, according to the disciplinary committee of the competition, which made the decision to make it a one-match ban. This decision was triggered by the fact that the professional foul was committed.

In the event that they are able to advance to the semifinals of the tournament by defeating the Super Eagles of Nigeria, he will be allowed to return to the competition. However, he will not be able to play in the game against Nigeria.

In the meantime, Beni Mukendi, a midfielder for Casa Pia, has departed the team’s camp after not playing in either of the team’s first two games of the season. As a result, he is no longer among the Super Eagles player roster.

The fact that Mukendi did not participate in any of their first three games of the tournament is something that he considers to be disrespectful on the part of the coach, and as a result, he decided to leave the camp.
