CAF is saddened by the sudden and unexpected passing of Mauritania Football Association Vice President, Pape Amghar Dieng.
Mr Dieng passed on Tuesday night, 24 January 2023 in Algeria following Mauritania’s historic 1-0 victory against Mali in Oran.
He has been hailed for his contribution as part of a leadership collective that has stirred Mauritania football on a path to success.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Federation Mauritanian Football family under the leadership of Ahmed Yahya, the family of Mr Dieng and Mauritanians during this difficult and sad moment.
Condolences to the Mauritania Football family and the people of Mauritania.
