AFCON 2019: CAF Kicks Out Sierra Leone, Ghana And Kenya Qualify
CAF has disqualified Sierra Leone from the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers series.
The Leone Stars, who were unable to honour their last three matches of qualifying Group F due to a Fifa ban on their football association, have been kicked out of the series with just one round of games to go.
The results of their two games played thus far - against Kenya (2-1 win) and Ethiopia (1-0 defeat) - have been nullified, leaving only three teams in the group.
CAF announced on Monday that its “Executive Committee at its meeting on Friday, 30 November 2018 in Accra decided on the case of Sierra Leone in the 2019 Total Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
“Sierra Leone is disqualified from the qualifiers and all its matches are annulled.”
By the current standings, Kenya and Ghana, with seven and six points to their names respectively, have secured qualification tickets for the final tournament ahead of the final and only remaining match of the group which coincidentally involves the two sides in March next year.
Ethiopia is the other team in the group with just one point.
