5 Eritrean players missing in Uganda
Meanwhile, police in Uganda have launched a hunt for five Eritrea players who disappeared from a Jinja hotel under unclear circumstances.
Eritrea is among the six countries taking part in the ongoing CECAFA Women's U20 Championship tournament which kicked off at the end of October.
However, the team's preparations for the tournament have been plunged into disarray after five of its members went missing from camp.
The incident was confirmed by CECAFA who revealed police have already initiated an operation to track down the players.
Legit.ng earlier reported that French club Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly considering the option of letting Sergio Ramos go after the former Real Madrid defender is yet to feature for the club since his arrival in the summer.
Having spent more than 15 years in the Spanish capital, the Spaniard joined the Parisians on free transfer about four months ago.
He is expected to bolster the club’s defence which already has the likes of Marquinhos and Presnel Kipembe.
