Comoros left-back turned goalkeeper Chaker Alhadhur to auction iconic shirt

Comoros defender, Chaker Alhadhur, who famously featured as a goalkeeper for the full 90 minutes when his nation played against Cameroon in the AFCON last 16 tie will auction his now iconic goalkeeper jersey he wore during that game.

The Coelacanths had to face the hosts with Alhadhur in goal since their two goalkeepers tested positive for COVID-19 while the other was missing the game due to injury.

The 30-year-old normally wears the number 3 shirt when playing in defence, Alhadhur was forced to officially wear number 16 during the game as this was a number assigned to goalkeepers.

Alhadhur famously taped a number 3 over the gold official lettering on the Comoros goalkeepers jersey for the match.

The Comoros international has decided to auction his shirt, complete with tape, off to the benefit of four charities.

The sale will run until Tuesday, February 22nd at 10p.m on the BiddingSport platform.

The player explained his Twitter page:

“I had the chance to live though an exceptional moment and it was important for me that this experience could benefit causes that are close to my heart. This is why I’ll put on my Comoros goalkeeper jersey, taped on the back, worn in the round of 16 up for auction.”
