CAIRO - Egypt’s Mohamed Aboutrika has been warned by the Confederation of African Football (CAF) for displaying a slogan in support of Gaza at the African Nations Cup finals in Ghana.

Aboutrika lifted his strip to reveal a tee-shirt with the slogan ‘Sympathy with Gaza’ as he celebrated scoring in the 3-0 win over Sudan in their Group C match in Kumasi. The midfielder was booked for his actions.

CAF officials said Aboutrika had been warned after the incident for breaching regulations by displaying political slogans.

Aboutrika’s action came a day before Egypt vowed to take measures to regain control of its border with the Gaza Strip as it struggled to contain the influx of Palestinians into Sinai after the frontier was breached by militants.
