Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Axel Méyé and Mario Lemina they have heart injury and they cannot play in the Africa Cup. The Gabonese Football Association has communicated with an official note, confirming that the players, already absent in the match against Comoros due to positivity to Covid, even if they are now negativized, they will not be able to play the second match, the one against Ghana, scheduled in Yaoundé.
Covid outbreak –
As soon as we arrived in Cameroon, a real broke out in the Gabonese team Covid-19 outbreak, but despite the absences they managed to win against the Comoros. Now, following the negativization of Aubameyang and the other teammates, it seemed that the road could be downhill and instead it becomes even more tortuous. For Aubameyang, this is certainly not a good moment, given that he was betting a lot on the Africa Cup to remind everyone of what he is made of after being sidelined by Arsenal.
Aubameyang & Co. now have heart injuries –
The medical tests to which the Gabonese footballers who had contracted Covid were subjected showed that the virus left them with heart lesions, for this the medical commission of the African Football Confederation he doesn’t want to take risks and wants the players to rest. Despite the negativization, they cannot return to play for now. It will be necessary inquiry and monitor these injuries to see if and when Aubameyang & Co. will be able to return to the field.
The case of the Gabonese footballers is the confirmation that Covid, unfortunately, also in healthy, sporty and very fit subjects, can leave marks and is yet another demonstration that the virus is dangerous for everyone and is best avoided. Perhaps the many young people who think that nothing will happen to them even if they contract it should take an example from these cases. If even the players take risks heart injury, it means that no one is safe.
