The fake Maradona's country is rumoured to have withdrawn, so only matches between the other 3 countries (Ghana, Kenya & Ethiopia) may count.

If that is the case, CAF is likely to mandate that only one team will qualify from that group.

With 3 countries left, if SL suspension is confirmed then only one team qualifies. The same happened to Nigeria last afcon.

And why would they do that ?

The rules stipulate that e top 2 teams in every group qualify, other than Cameroons group where one of he teams have to be Cameroon.

If Sierra Leone is disqualified then 2 of Kenya, Ghana, Ethiopia will qualify.

People are trying to compare what happened to us last time around when Chad dropped out to this time with SL but the 2 situations are entirely different.

No it's not the same.

Last time around Only 1 team was guaranteed from each group and the runners up would be competing based on points, however this time around there is no competition between runners up because every group has the top 2 teams qualify automatically with an exception of the Cameroon group where one of the 2 teams has to be Cameroon.

Why is everybody so ignorant of the rules ? Go read the Wikipedia page.

I still think that what happened with Chad was a mess.

Chad should have received far more punishment.

You cannot derail the balance in a group, because of lack of foresight.

Is every African country really expected to approach a group, as if one member will be absent at a later date? Seems logical, but it isn't. Any country that is banned or drops out due to a reason such as finances, should receive MASSIVE punishment, in addition to whatever punishment they already have. I.e. Sierra Leone should be banned from two AFCON qualifiers at least.

It makes a mockery of things. If your house is not in order, don't participate!

why do you people fail to read and lack simple logic?
In 2017 16 teams played in the finals
2019 - 24 teams will qualify to play in the final tournament including Cameroon
There are 12 qualifying groups

Now use your grey matter :winking:

There are 12 groups of 4 teams when the rules were made. Withdrawal of Sierra Leone changes that initial balance.

I won’t be surprised if CAF decides the last place between the better placed runner up team between the Ghana and Cameron group. That is assuming Cameroon finishes out of top 2.That at least will be the logical thing to do.

If however Cameroon finishes among the top 2 in their group, that renders this permutation mute.

Well thanks to Sierra Leon withdrawing Ghana will lose a potential 6 points and Ethiopia will only need a point to end them.

This has really been a bad football year for the bredas, missing out of the world cup and at risk of missing the next AFCON.

Sierra Leon was suspended by FIFA. They didn't withdraw.

You guys still so not comprehend simple maths.

If S Leone is out then Ethiopia will either lose the 3 points they gained beating them, or Ghana will be awarded 6 points.

My point is they will be fine.

They beat Ethiopia 5-0.

They can even lose to Ethiopia and still qualify.

Why is it so hard for you guys to understand basic rules.

VE,

You seem so fixated on the rules that you assume others do not understand the rules as written. The rules as written is not the issue here, bros.

The point is that those rules were written because of certain LOGIC. Now that sierra Leone is not playing, that LOGIC isn't so logical anymore. :rotf: Thus, the debate is simply THINKING about what CAF would rule in order to maintain FAIRNESS. That is the issue, my brother. It isn't as if CAF has not made changes to its rules before.

Let me even add another wrinkle:

Assume CAF decides to rule Cameroon out as host because of the ongoing crisis in Cameroon. Assume also that Morocco is chosen as host and assume Morocco finishes out of the top two spots (This is just an assumption!). Do you still think those rules on qualifying still apply? :rotf: Point is that you need to thin out of the box and beyond the existing rules.
