Yes, crazy story indeed. I've updated my blog with details of the no.11 player for Côte d'Ivoire. The Ivorians insist that the Gabonese team confused Nahi Marie José (presumably this no.11 player that South Africa were concerned about) with Salimata. A google search brings up only 2 results for this name - which is strange - but there is another player (also an attacker) with the name Nahi (Nahi Estelle - also known as 'Adebayor') who missed the first leg of the Côte d'Ivoire v Gabon match. Reason? Lack of passport... Surely not the same player. Surely? Well she also played for Côte d'Ivoire in 2007 against Senegal, and was reported as "Josee Estelle Nahi". So, at some point in between, she has not renewed her passport, apparently... This could open up a huge can of worms though. I've read a report from The Monitor in Uganda that mentions the names of 2 Ugandan women who played in the 2000 African Women's Championship and who subsequently defected to DR Congo to gain citizenship there and were drafted into that country's national team for an African Championship qualifier against Zambia in 2006. To make matters more difficult, the two players also changed their names.
