Dolphins stay put in Tunis

18 March 2015, 12:43Israel Ojoko

Lagos - Dolphins FC are still waiting in Tunis following an order by the Confederation of African Football.

CAF says it will decide whether the Nigerian club has been walked over after they did not arrive on time for a Confederation Cup first round, first game on Saturday against Club Africain.

Dolphins FC were to play Club Africain in Tunis on Saturday by 3pm, but claimed the team arrived in the city at 1pm aboard an Emirates Airline flight from Dubai, only for immigration authorities to take two hours to issue the team entry visa into the country.

“Reference to the above mentioned match which was initially scheduled on 14th March 2015; we would like to request your team Dolphin to stay in Tunis until a decision is reached and communicated to you,” wrote Nassar.
