Eliminated on January 24th, 2022, at the stage of the eighth-finals, the national soccer team of Comoros has made a sensation in this competition that is discovered. For their performance, all observers are satisfied and even think that the team would have done better in this 33rd edition of the CAN if it had not been a victim of cases of covid-19 in its ranks, or if it had not received a red card in the 7th minute of play. 83 minutes of numerical inferiority and loss (1-2).

The news fell this January 28th, 2022. The jury of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) has imposed a fine of 17,000 dollars to the Coelacanths for several reasons. The information that reached us states that “the Comoros team has been charged for showing irresponsible behavior on several occasions, including serious violations of the Covid-19 protocols and forcing access to the locker room”.

Secondly, “the match officials’ report refers to verbal abuse of officials, and the disrespectful behavior of the goalkeepers’ trainer, Jean-Daniel Noel Patrice Padovani. The team of Comoros was also accused of causing a two-minute delay on the kickoff after their player left the locker room wearing a jersey that was not his”.

Finally, the team was fined $10,000 for “failure to comply with the Covid-19 protocol required by CAF”; a fine of 5,000 dollars “for non-compliance with the jersey numbers already registered in the CMS system by the players” and a fine of $2,000 “for the delay caused by the players” This makes a total of $17,000 in fines.
