Chad national football team will not take part in the final matches of qualification for next year’s Africa Cup of Nations scheduled to hold in cameroon.
Chad was disqualified from the African Cup of Nations qualifying on Monday because the country’s government dissolved the football federation.
Consequently, scheduled qualifier matches between Namibia (match 106) and Mali (match 130) for Total AFCON 2021 are canceled and forfeited as 3-0 losses.
The CAF decision is one of the first taken under its new leadership. General secretary Veron Mosengo-Omba left FIFA to run the Cairo-based governing body after South African billionaire Patrice Motsepe was elected CAF president on March 12.
Motsepe was elected unopposed as part of a deal brokered by FIFA president Gianni Infantino.
FIFA could now suspend Chad from world soccer. FIFA statutes allow for member federations to be suspended when governments are believed to have interfered in the independence of elected soccer officials.
