CAF to Honor Late Apanga at U17 AFCON, Gabonese Player died during Training with his Club

The Organizing Committee of the U-17 Africa Cup of Nations Gabon 2017 has decided that a minute of silent will be observed before kick-off of the opening match, in honour of Gabonese midfielder, Moïse Brou Apanga, who passed away last month.

The Committee at its meeting on Saturday, 13 May 2017 in Libreville granted a request from the Gabonese Football Association and the Local Organising Committee for the moment of silence during the opening match between host Gabon and Guinea on Sunday, in Port Gentil.

Apanga died on 27 April 2017, after suffering a cardiac arrest during a training session with his club FC 105, in Libreville.
He was 35. His funeral is underway in the Gabonese capital, Libreville.
The central defender, who played for Italian clubs Perugia and Brescia at the peak of his career, represented “Les Panthères” at the 2010 and 2012 editions of the Africa Cup of Nations.
