CAF to investigate Congolese no show

Listen to article

The Confederation of African Football-CAF has decided to set up a committee to investigate the circumstances surrounding the cancellation of the African Women's Championship qualifier between Ghana and Congo.

CAF backed down on its instruction that the game must be played on a new date after a comprehensive protest letter from the Ghana Football Association.

Congo cited flight problems for their failure to show up for the first leg of the qualifier in Obuasi on Sunday.

The match commissioner had called off the fixture and declared Ghana winners over the two legs after convincing herself that the Congolese had breached the applicable CAF regulations.
