๐ŸŒ Breaking: Guinea Bissau's 25-man squad gets hospitalised

The Guinea-Bissau Football Federation has confirmed that their entire squad of 25 players has been hospitalised after falling ill before facing Morocco on Wednesday night.

According to the FA, the Guinea-Bissau squad were having dinner at their hotel base in Morocco on Tuesday night, when, 15 minutes later, everyone, including wives and girlfriends began feeling upset stomachs.

The players were suffering from diarrhea and were vomiting. Everyone was thus rushed to the hospital.

"Guinea-Bissau Football Federation has reported that 25 players and some technical staff suffered diarrhea and vomiting last night after their dinner and were sent to the hospital for intensive care," leading African reporter Nuhu Adams reported.

UPDATE:

The latest news has revealed that only six Guinea-Bissau players actually fell ill. The match has therefore gone ahead as scheduled on Wednesday night.
