CAF clears Ebola-free Liberia to host football games again

CAIRO -- The Confederation of African Football has cleared Liberia to host international football games again after it was declared free of Ebola by the World Health Organization.

It means Liberia will be able to play at home in 2017 African Cup of Nations qualifying, which begins next month, and 2018 World Cup qualifying later in the year.

However, CAF's announcement on Friday also noted that Guinea and Sierra Leone, the two other West African nations most-affected by the Ebola outbreak, cannot...

Tom Saintfiet agrees two-year deal as Togo coach

LOME, Togo -- Tom Saintfiet has been given a two-year contract to coach the Togo national team.

The Belgian had been in charge on a temporary basis after Tchakala Tchanile's contract was not renewed last year following the failure to qualify for this year's African Nations Cup.

Togo Football Federation interim head Antoine Folly says Saintfiet will have former international defender Jean Paul Abolo as his assistant coach.

The 43-year-old Saintfiet has previously coached Namibia, Zimbabwe, Ethiopia...

Will FIFA's new passport eligibility rules have the desired effect?

Will the new rules avoid future situations such as that which Herve Zengue, left, faced several years ago?

CAS lifts Morocco ban from African Nations Cup

LAUSANNE, Switzerland -- Morocco have been cleared to play in the next two editions of the African Nations Cup after the Court of Arbitration for Sport lifted the ban imposed by the Confederation of African Football on Thursday.

The North-African nation was expelled from the 2017 and 2019 tournaments and was fined $1 million by the CAF, which also demanded a further $9 million in compensation, after the country pulled out because of the Ebola epidemic.

Although it acknowledged Morocco's decision...

CAF rejects Tunisia appeal against $50K fine but no ban

Host nation Equatorial Guinea are through to the semifinals of the African Nations Cup after a controversial 2-1 win over Tunisia in Bata.

CAIRO -- The Confederation of African Football said on Tuesday it had rejected an appeal by Tunisia against a $50,000 fine for violent conduct by its players at the African Nations Cup.

However, CAF did not ban the North African country from the next edition of the tournament -- as it had threatened to do -- after the Tunisian Football Federation made a "a formal apology" for accusing CAF of being biased against it.

The case related to an African Cup quarterfinal match on Jan. 31, when a disputed...
