CAN 2019: THE COMOROS CLAIM THE DISQUALIFICATION OF CAMEROON
Since CAF withdrew CAN 2019 in Cameroon, the Comoros, which are in the same eliminating squad, have called for the disqualification of the Indomitable Lions.
A week after the announcement of the withdrawal of CAN 2019 from Cameroon, several questions remain unresolved. For now, the Confederation of African Football (CAF) has for example made no details on the situation of group B qualifying, that of Cameroon.
In this pool, Morocco is already qualified, unlike the Indomitable Lions who lost their status of qualified ex officio, which leaves a little hope to the Comoros, 3rd, validate their ticket.
Moreover, the Coelacanths even intend to go further because they demand the CAF to apply the rules to the letter and disqualify Cameroon! “I had my president this morning, he sent a letter to CAF asking for clarification,” said the general manager of the Comoros, Saadi Ben Amir, on Thursday on RFI. “We are asking for the application of the regulation, and more specifically Article 92, which states that a country which is withdrawn from the organization of the CAN does not participate in the edition in question.”
The country of El Fardou Ben Nabouhane can also put forward several precedents. Morocco (CAN 2015), Madagascar (CAN U17 2017) and Kenya (CHAN 2018) have all been disqualified by CAF after losing their host country status in recent years.
Still, the governing body of African football favors dialogue and appeasement in the case of Cameroon and leniency should therefore prevail … The classification: Morocco 10 points (qualified), Cameroon 8 pts, Comoros 5 pts, Malawi 4 pts The program of the last day (March 2019): Cameroon-Comoros and Malawi-Morocco
