Arriving yesterday in Limbé, the Mourabitounes of Mauritania began their first day with a march on January 8.
The Mauritanian selection is doing its first training session this afternoon. Housed in group F, the Mourabitounes began their day with a walk around their residence hotel. The players were accompanied throughout their journey by law enforcement elements.
A militarization that is justified by the ongoing crisis in this region of the South-West. It should be remembered that separatist fighters threaten to disrupt the course of the competition in the English-speaking region.
Mauritania begins the tournament on January 12 by facing Gambia at the Omnisports Stadium in Limbé. It will face Tunisia (16 January) and Mali (20 January).
