By John Kay: Salone’s AFCON qualifier against Kenya on 18th, Nov. cancelled


This match was supposed to be played in Nairobi on Nov. 18th.

However Football Kenya Federation on Sunday received a communique from the Confederation of African Football (Caf) calling off the game.

Salone are currently serving an indefinite suspension from all football activities imposed on them by Fifa.

The Leone Stars, who beat Kenya 2-1 in the reverse fixture June last year, also forfeited back-to-back qualification matches against Ghana last month.

Kenya needed a win in this match to guarantee qualification to next year’s Africa Cup of Nations for the first time in 15 years.

Caf has however explained it will give more direction on the status of Group F where Kenya sits at the top with seven points, Ethiopia second with four, Ghana third with three while bottom-placed Salone also have three.

Both Kenya and Ethiopia have played four matches while Ghana and Salone have only played two.

The top two teams in each group qualify for the Africa Cup of Nations set for Cameroon June next year.
