The FRMF still waiting

The Royal Moroccan Football Federation (FRMF) has still not received a response from the African Football Confederation (CAF) regarding its request to travel directly to Algeria via a flight from Rabat to Constantine, so that the team of local footballers can participate in the final of the African Cup of Nations for local players (CHAN) which will take place in Algeria.
