Nations Cup Qualifier: CAF Deducts 3 Points From Nigeria, Explains Why - CAF by iamlarry99: 11:39pm On Mar 27, 2016
The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has deducted points from Nigeria, Egypt and Tanzania, all members of Group G, following the withdrawal of Chad from the ongoing qualification race for the 31st edition of the Africa Cup of Nations, Gabon 2017.

Chad were due to travel to Tanzania for the fourth match in the group, but instead made the announcement of a shocking withdrawal, citing financial constraints.

CAF swiftly applied its rules in conformity with Article 61 of the regulations of the competition which states: “If a team withdraws from the qualifying phase organised in groups, all its results shall be annulled (points, scored and conceded goals)”.
”Consequently, the three matches of Chad of Group G are cancelled and the results will not be taken into consideration”, CAF said.

Egypt still lead the group with four points,, while Nigeria have two. Tanzania have a point.
CAF further said that in accordance, with the rule set by CAF Executive Committee on 15 January 2015, any group reduced to three teams following the withdrawal of a team will have only the group winner qualifying for the final tournament.


Furthermore, the Chadian Football Federation has been fined 20,000 US Dollars and also barred from participating in the next edition of the AFCON in conformity with Article 59 of the regulations of the Competition which states “any association declaring forfeit after the start of the matches is liable to a fine of twenty thousand (20,000) U.S. dollars. It will also not be allowed to participate in the next edition of the AFCON”.

Meanwhile, Egypt will face Nigeria on Tuesday, 29 March 2016 in Alexandria.

Shey na two dey qualify for group? This is a must win, Moses, Iwobi and Echejile need more playing time. That guy with jersey No.6 should not boarder going forward. He should focus on defending only. I suggest he should stay at back and be waiting for M.Salah...

Na only one, but two groups are going to produce one best loser each. But with this withdrawal, it's not gonna be from our group. Our best shot to the tournament now is to defeat Egypt in Alexandria stadium.

Chisoooooooooooooooooos! jungle don mature.

God no allow Oliseh and all the SE resignees laugh us to scorn.

Oluwa help us to qualify so that NEPA, PHCN, IBEDC, BEDC,AEDC, EEDC , PHED or whatever that is their name, would see reasons to give us light during the AFCON proper.

#NigeriaMustQualifyTomorrow.
Thumbs up if you pray with me.

If this post is authentic,then the standing would be thus:
Egypt-4points
Nigeria-2points
Tanzania- 1point

And should Nigeria triumph over Egypt on Tuesday,we'll be 5point atop the table. #StillFair

Anything short of 3 maximum point against Egypt on Tuesday, then Nigeria should forget about the cup of Nations. But why always Siasia.

There is nothing as good as making provisions for things like this. They just applied the law and everything is fine.

Is the Egypt match the last match? Or is there still any match we are playing. Because me i no know how the fixtures dey go. So even if we beat Egypt we won't still qualify.
