Zimbabwe players threaten to boycott AFCON 2019 opener over money row

AFCON 2019 might have a colorful opening ceremony but no official opening match as the Zimbabwean players are threatening to boycott the opening game of the Africa Cup of Nations against host Egypt because they haven’t been paid.

Players and a team official, who spoke to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the situation, said a meeting with federation officials at the team hotel on Thursday failed to resolve the stand-off.

Zimbabwe are due to open Africa’s top tournament against Egypt on Friday in Cairo.
