Seychelles out of Afcon 2015 race
Latest report reaching Sierra Express Media Sport UK has stated Seychelles has cancelled Saturday’s 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Sierra Leone because of fears over the Ebola virus.
The Indian Ocean island Seychelles have forfeited the match and consequently their place in the competition and likely to face with CAF action.
President Elvis Chetty of Seychelles Football Association told BBC Sport: “The decision is for Seychelles FA to forfeit the match. I would like to state that the Seychelles FA lays no blame at the feet of the Sierra Leone FA for this. We have taken the decision because of the advice sent to us by the Seychelles Ministry of Health.
We also received a letter from the Ministry of Immigration saying it would not allow the Sierra Leone team to enter our jurisdiction.”
Sierra Leone, with the advantage led the tie 2-0 after last week’s first leg, are now set to be awarded a place in the next stage of the qualifiers.
