The official pointed out that the team only traveled out to continue camping in Abidjan, before heading to the competition proper after eight days, before whichsome players would still be dropped.

“There was nothing to be ashamed about in how the players traveled out on Wednesday,” the official stressed.

“There were only going for another phase in their pre-competition camping, so there was no need to give them a uniform or formal kit.

The truth is that arrangements have already been made to hand the kit to them in Abidjan, after the final list is made’’
