Sudanese player Saif El Din Ali has added more controversy to his ongoing saga with Sudan, Zambia and Caf.
Saif told the Sudanese TV and SuperSport that he talked to his technical staff and told them that he was banned and could not play against Zambia but they did not care.
” I told the technical staff that I cant play in the Zambia match after I got the red card in the last Afcon match but they told me that I would play against Zambia because CAF did not notify them that I was banned” Saif said.
Zambia has since protested to CAF about the player featuring in the 2014 World Cup qualifier in Omdurman where the African champion lost 0 – 2.
As we know Zambia play in the group D and they have 3 points after their victory against Ghana while Sudan lead the top of the group with 4 points with Ghana in the second place with 3 points but a better goal difference.
