The fact that I’ll be covering it for CAF makes it extra special – I will be covering it from the front the seat,” Mr. Bah GFF Media.
“I’m humbled that my first senior AFCON coverage features my Scorpions. I have covered the senior national team closely for the last seven years and to be at the AFCON with them is a dream come true for me.”
