The 2017 Afcon Qualifier between Flames and Guinea on Friday will proceed as scheduled as CAF has given clearance for the match to be played in Conakry after being given the green-light by World Health Organisation that Conakry is safe of Ebola threats.

FAM wrote CAF seeking guidance following reports of new Ebola cases in Guinea.

CAF then wrote WHO who have since said that the new threats have not affected Conakry.

“Many thanks for your message! The cases are in Nzérékoré in the forest area do not pose a threat to holding match in Conakry. There is no travel restriction to Conakry,” reads a message from Dr Socé Fall, Director Health Security and emergencies at WHO regional Office for Africa.

This means Flames will go ahead to face Guinea at 26 September Stadium on Friday afternoon.

The Flames are currently in Sierra Leone where they will play a training match this afternoon before proceeding to Guinea later in the evening.
