AFCON 2019: Another player sent home from Egypt





Hosts, Egypt have sent midfielder Amr Warda home from the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations for disciplinary reasons.

The decision to remove Warda, who plays for Greek club PAOK, was announced on the day Egypt play DR Congo.

The Egypt Football Federation said he was withdrawn “to maintain discipline, commitment and concentration”.

It is understood that Warda’s social media conversations with several women have been leaked onto the Internet, after the Pharoahs’ 1-0 win over Zimbabwe in the tournament’s opening game.

The 25-year-old only appeared as a substitute in that match on Friday.

“The head of the Egyptian Football Federation, Hani Abu Reda, has decided to dismiss Amr Warda from the team’s camp after consulting with the team’s technical and administrative staff,” read a statement by the Egypt Football Federation on Twitter.

He is the second player to be sent home from the AFCON following Burundi forward Selemani Yamini Ndikumana.
