Guinea Bissau players hospitalized over suspected food poisoning
About 18 Guinea-Bissau players have reportedly been hospitalized in Moroccan City, Rabat, over a suspected food poisoning, the country’s federation has revealed.
“Something strange happened yesterday with the players and [members] of the technical team of the Guinea-Bissau national football team. After dinner, they were all vomiting and showing signs of diarrhea and were rushed to the hospital.
“Guinea-Bissau has a match scheduled for today with the Moroccans, and it is not known if the match will take place or not,” the post shared on Federation of Guinea-Bissau Facebook.
According to the Bissau-Guinean Federation, all the players were taken to hospital following general diarrhea symptoms.
The players were admitted to a hospital in the Moroccan capital where the match should be played.
Morocco’s qualifying matches for the 2022 World Cup are not going as planned.
The national team—which was forced to postpone its match against Guinea after the military coup in Conakry—is once again faced with a delicate situation.
‘‘For the time being, no official announcement has yet been made on the progress of the match which still seems to be maintained at the Prince Moulay Abdellah complex, October 06, on the sidelines of the qualifiers for the 2022 World Cup,’’ the post further read.
