No home ties for Guinea, Sierra Leone in the 2015 Afcon qualifiers at least for now


Guinea and Sierra Leone will have to wait to know whether or not they will play Ghana Black Stars and Cameroon indomitable Lions respectively at home or away. A new assessment of the situation will be discussed in a few days in consultation with the World Health Organization (WHO) and the CAF Medical Committee.

Both Nations will have to continue on a neutral ground after CAF confirmed they are still not permitted to host 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers matches in their country.

CAF said, contrary to recent false claims disseminated by a section of the media, to create the impression that the Confederation Africaine de Football (CAF) has granted Guinea the green-light to host matches at home; CAF wishes to affirm that the circular dated 12 August 2014 which stated that Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone cannot host matches on their territories due to the Ebola outbreak.

The CAF Executive Committee is scheduled to meet on 19-20 September 2014 at the African Union (AU) Headquarters in Addis Ababa, to decide on further precautionary measures with respect to countries hit by the Ebola outbreak.

Guinea played their opening qualifier in Casablanca where they triumphed 2-1 over Togo but lost to Uganda 2-1. The Syli Nationale are expected to host the Black Stars on 10 October.

Sierra Leone where defeated in both their qualifiers to Ivory Coast and DR Congo, and will take on Cameroon in a double header next month.
