Africa Cup Of Nations: Sierra Leone Disqualified From 2019 Qualifiers

Africa Cup Of Nations: Sierra Leone Disqualified From 2019 Qualifiers
Sierra Leone have been disqualified from the 2019 Africa Cup of
Nations qualifying campaign because of government interference
in the country’s football association.
It means Kenya and Ghana qualify for next year’s Nations Cup
finals from Group F.
Sierra Leone were suspended from all football by Fifa in October
and an investigation was launched.
They have not played any qualifying matches since that ban.
The ban was imposed after the country’s anti-corruption
commission (ACC) barred Sierra Leone Football Association
president Isha Johansen and general secretary Christopher
Kamara from the governing body’s offices. Both deny any
wrongdoing.
The Confederation of African Football (CAF), which made the
decision on Friday, confirmed in a statement on Monday that all
Sierra Leone’s matches during the qualifying campaign are now
“annulled.”
With one match remaining in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations
qualifying campaign, Kenya are top of Group F on seven points
from three matches, with Ghana a point behind.
Ethiopia are third on one point from four games and cannot now
qualify.
CAF is looking for new hosts for the 2019 Nations Cup after
confirming on Friday that Cameroon had been stripped of hosting
rights for next year’s showpiece event.
