2022 World Cup qualifiers: Morocco thrash diarrhoea-hit Guinea-Bissau as Sudan hold Mali

Morocco cruised to a comfortable 5-0 victory over Guinea-Bissau who struggled with diarrhoea and vomiting before their 2022 Fifa World Cup qualifiers on Wednesday.

The West African country complained of a crisis that struck their team after they had their dinner on Tuesday with players and members of the technical crew vomiting and diarrhoea.

After publicly complaining about the issue with the hope of having the match postponed, the match commissioner ordered the encounter to go on at the Stade Prince Moulay Abdallah.

"All 25 players at Mister Baciro Cande's disposition have vomiting and diarrhoea after dinner tonight," a statement read Guinea-Bissau FA socialmediapage.
