With the removal of the selections of Ghana and Guinea-Bissau from the African Cup of Nations (CAN), the players Mumin and Alfa Semedo return earlier to Guimarães to join the work of the Vitória team, although neither of them should arrive on time and able to be an option for this journey, in which the conquerors welcome Estoril on Sunday.
The central Mumin was not used in any of the three games that the Ghanaian team played during the tournament. Having managed only one draw, Ghana said goodbye prematurely to Cameroon, the host country of the competition, and with a very poor image.
Alfa Semedo’s Guinea-Bissau also fell in the group stage. The midfielder was infected with Covid-19 and that’s why he was only used in this last game, against Nigeria, and only in 21 minutes.
There remains the Malian Sacko, who today faces Mauritania. The Victorians’ right-back, who in the national team has been used as a centre-back, should be the only one of the conquerors’ three players to remain in the CAN.
