The UK government is advising against all but essential travel to two of the Afcon host cities, Limbe and Garoua, where 12 Premier League players are due to play, including Salah, Manchester United starlet, Hannibal Mejbri and Arsenal ‘s Omar Rekik and Mohamed Elneny.

There is also the possibility of attacks across the country, warn human rights groups. Even the British High Commission in the capital, Yaoundé, has been threatened.

But Garoua in the north and Limbe in the west of Cameroon, are considered by the UK government to be particular risks.

Garoua will host Group D matches between Egypt, Sudan, Nigeria and Guinea Bissau. A host of Premier League stars will play at the Roumdé-Adjia Stadium. As well as Salah, Egypt’s squad includes, Arsenal’s Mohamed Elneny and Trezeguet.
