The Confederation of African Football has decided to replace Equatorial Guinea with Kenya at the Women’s Africa Cup of Nations.
Kenya have now come in for Equatorial Guinea at the Women’s Africa Cup of Nations which will take place soon.
Football Kenya Federation (FKFF) have also made an official confirmation on all of their social media platforms and even website.
And that is the fact that the Harambee Starlets have replaced Equatorial Guinea at the 2018 Women’s African Nations Cup.
The eight-team tournament for ladies is set to kick off in Ghana as from 17 November of the year 2018.
Two-time winners, Equatorial Guinea handed out a 3-2 defeat on aggregate to the Kenyans in the final round of qualifying.
But that was prior to the Kenyan female national team lodging a protest over the eligibility of six E/Guinean players.
The Confederation of African Football (Caf) thereafter made a decision to uphold FKF’s protest over one player “Anette Jacky Messomo.
And the player in question was allegedly of Cameroonian nationality and she had also starred for several European based teams.”
CAF slap Equatorial Guinean FA with US$10,0000 fine
An official letter from Caf went through to Football Kenya Federation.
And it read: “The (Caf) Disciplinary Board decides that it has upheld Kenya’s protest.
“The board has also imposed a sanction of US$10,0000 on the Equatorial Guinean FA.
“And Equatorial Guinea’s Team will now suffer disqualification from the TOTAL African Women’s Cup of Nations taking place in 2018.”
It will be Kenya’s second appearance at the competition after their bow at the 2016 tourney which held in Cameroon.
