Sao Tome & Principe will now face Guinea-Bissau this month in Morocco after winning their appeal.

The Confederation of African Football’s (Caf) Appeals Board has overturned the ruling by its Disciplinary board that Sao Tome had fielded an ineligible player during their preliminary round tie.

Sao Tome will join Group A of the 2023 Nations Cup qualifiers alongside Nigeria, Guinea-Bissau, and Sierra Leone.

As a result, Sao Tome and Principe, not Mauritius, will face Guinea-Bissau in Morocco and Nigeria’s Super Eagles in the opening two qualifiers this month.

“The Football Federation of Guinea-Bissau, at the end of the afternoon of Tuesday, May 31, received a letter from CAF, in which it mentions that now the game of the first match of Group A will be against São Tomé and Prince, in place of the Islands M earphones.”

Guinea-Bissau will host Sao Tome in the Moroccan city of Agadir due to Guinea-Bissau being one of several African nations whose stadium failed to meet Caf international standards.

After winning their appeal, Sao Tome & Principe is now poised to face Nigeria’s Super Eagles on matchday two of the AFCON 2023 qualifiers this month.
