Aubameyang Joins Gabon’s AFCON 2021 Squad

Published:

Sacked Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has joined the Gabon squad ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations.

The Athletic reports he has already reported for international duty, meaning he is unavailable for the New Year’s Day clash against Manchester City at the Emirates Stadium.

The tournament in Cameroon will get underway on January 9 and even counting for just group stage matches, Aubameyang will miss at least five Gunners fixtures.

Along with the City clash there is also the two-legged Carabao Cup semi-final against Liverpool, the FA Cup third round tie against Nottingham Forest and even the north London derby against Tottenham Hotspur.

A Premier League clash at home to Burnley the following weekend on January 22 may also come too soon for the striker even if Gabon are knocked out of the group stage.

Should Gabon go all the way to the final on February 6, then Aubameyang could also miss the clash at Wolves on February 10.
