Six Football Fans Die While Celebrating Guinea’s AFCON Victory


Six Guinean supporters have lost their lives while celebrating their country’s first victory at the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast.

The Guinean Football Federation, said on Monday that the incident took place during a celebratory event on the streets of Conakry, the capital of Guinea.
Fans celebrated by driving cars and riding motorcycles.
Guinea emerged victorious with a 1-0 win over The Gambia in their second group game in Ivory Coast on Friday night, sparking joyous celebrations throughout the West African nation.

Feguifoot media manager Amadou Makadji said, “What is important is that our fans and the public celebrate in a very measured fashion.

They have to be very careful to not put themselves in danger, because the goal of football is to bring joy and not leave families bereaved. We do not want deaths to mourn, so we call on everyone to celebrate but to take care of themselves so that nothing happens to them.

“Guinea is a country where people are very, very passionate about football and they experience football like nowhere else in the world.”

Guinea now sits second in Group C with four points, two behind reigning champions Senegal but three ahead of third-placed, five-time winners Cameroon, while the Gambians remain bottom with one point.
