Dodgy Eritrea Players Persuaded To Go Home

After an intervention by Botswana Football Association Officials, 10 players from the visiting Eritrea National team agreed to board the bus enroute to Gaborone where they’ll board a 18:20 flight to Johannesburg.
The team missed the morning flight due to stand off as some players showed their desire to remain in the country.
Eritrea has a history of absconding whenever they are on national duty.  In 2012 17 players and a team doctor were reported to have absconded in Uganda.
Only 12 players returned from a shopping trip.
In 2010 after the CECAFA tournament in Tanzania 13 players from  Eritrea team disappeared only to reappear in Houston Texas under refugee resettlement programme in the United States
