Guinea-Bissau MPs defeated the members of the Government 5-4 today in a football game in the context of a national unity tournament, which had as its referee the President of the country, Umaro Sissoco Embaló.
In the game, organized by the Secretary of State for Youth and Sports, the absence of deputies from opposition parties to the Government was noted, namely those from the African Independence Party of Guinea and Cape Verde (PAIGC).
The match ended in a draw with three goals, during the regular 70 minutes and, in the kick-off of the penalties for the tiebreaker, the Government ended up losing with the failure of the shot by the Minister of Finance, João Fadiá.
The game was played at a very slow pace, with some players from both teams having to wear glasses.
The atmosphere was relaxed and not even the referee managed to prevent the players from leaving the game area to drink water, without asking for authorization, or even for a short rest and return to the game.
Captain of the Government team, although wearing the number 36 jersey, the Prime Minister, Nuno Nabiam, was one of the main attractions of the game, but Interior Minister Botche Candé, with the number 10 on his back, was the one who got the most applause from each time I touched the ball.
Without running too much, because the pace of the game was slow Umaro Sissoco Embaló, also wearing glasses, had no difficulty in judging the incidences of the match.
After the first half, Sissoco Embaló left the field and left the whistle to Meta Camará, vice president of the National Civil Society Movement, especially because, on Sunday afternoon, the Presidency of the Republic will face the judiciary.
The question that arose on the field was whether or not Embaló will play.
The winner of Sunday’s match will play against the deputies in the tournament final on the 18th.
