Speaking ahead of Gabon’s final Group C fixture against Morocco tonight: Meye told CAF Online on Monday: “It was not easy for me because I missed the first game after testing positive for Covid-19.

“It was a difficult moment to digest because I wanted to contribute.

“Still, I hope to be an asset to the team. I feel better in all aspects, and I’m fit for tomorrow’s game. The absence of Aubameyang and Mario is felt, we are strong when we are together… but, it is important to put health first.
