AFCON 2017: CAF silent on Morocco’s fate



The Confederation of African Football has refused to confirm whether Morocco will feature in qualifiers for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations, despite the fact that the Court of Arbitration for Sport overturned the country’s ban from the tournament.

The court this Thursday ruled against CAF’s ban on Morocco from the 2017 and 2019 editions.

But on Friday, the continental body remained non-committal over whether the North African nation would be allowed to qualify for the events.

CAF will hold its annual general congress next week in Cairo and the matter will be discussed there.

Morocco were suspended from the next two editions of the Nations Cup after they did not host the 2015 event because of their fears over the outbreak of Ebola on the continent.
