Ghana and Kenya have made it to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations with a final qualify in March, 2019 to go.
The news came following a decision by the Executive Committee of the Conf ederation of African Football (Caf) to disqualify Group F contenders Sierra Leone.The Sierra Leonean Football Association (SLFA) was banned by Fifa in October ahead of the Leone Stars’ double-header with Ghana.
The suspension remained till the Stars were scheduled to play Kenya’s Harambee Stars despite attempts to resolve the rift between the government-backed leadership and the elected leadership.
On Friday, November 30, a decision was taken in Accra to have Sierra Leone disqulaified from the qualifiers.
All its matches were subsequently annulled.
This left Group F with three teams: Kenya, Ghana and Ethiopia, who are subsequently done with their qualifiers.
With Ghana and Kenya atop the group, their March qualifier in Accra would be a dead rubber as they secure the two tickets in contention.
Current Standing of Group F:
Kenya 7pts
Ghana 6pts
Ethiopia 1pt
Meanwhile, Caf has promised to secure a host for the tournament by the end of the year.
This followed the Committee’s decision on Friday to strip Cameroon of the hosting rights.
