Sierra Leone's Afcon clashes scrapped
11 October 2018 | Sports
Sierra Leone was suspended by Fifa over government interference in football and was given a deadline of 17:00 GMT on Tuesday by world football's governing body to come up with guarantees that it had resolved the issue.
“Qualifier matches Ghana vs Sierra Leone and Sierra Leone vs Ghana on 11 and 14 October, respectively, have been cancelled...” CAF said in a tweet.
It added that the Sierra Leone Football Association (SLFA) had supplied the guarantees requested by Fifa to allow the suspension to be lifted.
The West African nation was rocked last week when Fifa suspended it for government interference.
The bust-up is rooted in a move by the country's anti-corruption commission to sack SLFA president Isha Johansen and general-secretary Christopher Kamara amid an ongoing probe into corruption and mismanagement.
Fifa had demanded that the pair be reinstated when their suspensions were announced on 5 October.
