10 Eritrea Players Refuse To Go Home

Ten Eritrean players who were part of the countryโ€™s senior national team that lost to the Zebras in the 2018 World Cup qualifying game yesterday (Tuesday) have reportedly refused to return to their country, instead seeking refugee status in Botswana.


Botswana Football Association (BFA)’s Acting Vice President Admin, Basadi Akoonyatse said this morning that after their team lost 3-1 against the Botswana national team, at least ten players who were part of the 24-man Eritrean national team did not return to their official lodging, instead handing themselves over the police and declaring that they were seeking political asylum.
