The 31-year-old and his international colleagues will take on Gambia in an important AFCON 2021 qualifying clash on Monday, but not after enduring a difficult night's sleep. 

Aubameyang and his teammates were said to be held at the airport at which they arrived in Gambia for six hours, a situation the team captain likened to a hostage incident, according to the Daily Star. 

The Gunners forward took to Twitter to show his followers and the world what he and his colleagues went through, revealing images of his Gabon teammates sleeping on the floor inside the airport and more. 

 

 

 

Aubameyang also tweeted on Monday afternoon that he and his teammates are more ready than ever for their match, suggesting that the Gambian authorities made a mistake in attempting to disrupt his team's preparations for the tie.
