Nobody deserves such feelings of embarrassment. CAF and Mauritania players lived through real awkwardness when the wrong national anthem was played against Gambia on Wednesday.
As was seen on live television, Mauritania was subjected to the wrong national anthem getting played three times. What a mess.
The organisers eventually decided to ditch the music and let the players sing the tune acapella.
Check out the scenes in the video and images below…
