Welcome to Gabon vs Comoros
Hello, good evening and welcome to SunSport’s live coverage of the Africa Cup of Nations Group C clash between Comoros and Gabon in Yaounde.
The match sees both sides get their Afcon campaigns underway.
But it will be an extra special occasion for Comoros, with the East African side making their tournament debut.
The volcanic archipelago has a population of around 870,000 and will look to punch above its weight at this year’s tournament.
Gabon, meanwhile, are more seasoned competitors at this level.
But they will have to cope without star man Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for this one.
The Arsenal forward hasn’t played at club level in over a month after being exiled by Gunners boss Mikel Arteta.
But since his arrival in Cameroon he has tested positive for Covid-19, ruling him out of his nation’s first two games.
Their could yet be Premier League involvement, however, with Brighton youngster Ulrick Eneme Ella part of Gabon’s 28-man squad.
The 20-year-old has been a regular for the Seagulls’ Under-23 side this season.
He represented France up to Under-19 level, before switching his allegiance to Gabon.
