Abou-Rida: Chad’s delayed arrival was planned
Abou-Rida praised Chad’s players for their performance on the field during the match, which they lost 4-0 to Egypt.
He highlighted their performance in regards to being a team that had just landed from their flight.
“For a team that just landed a while back, they played pretty well. They did not look like a silly team, they probably did their warm-ups on the flight,” he said.
Abou-Rida also spoke of the possible reasons the team landed this late saying it was more to do with finances.
“I know Chad’s FA president, and the reason they came this late to Egypt was to save up on the finances after the new regulations set by the CAF,” he concluded.
