    Sorry Ghana, see you at next edition.

  • This is crazy. On what basis? No seeding? How does CAF square Nigeria and Ghana and then Uganda and Ethiopia face each other. What is the ranking of these things on FIFA? How do you pair 2 top teams and then 2 lower-tier teams? So the top ones can cancel each other out? This smells too much like football politics. Anyway, nah Ghana go suffer am.

    • Mr Hush 3 years ago

      Absolutely ridiculous..

      I just can’t understand CAF.

      The problem started since they change the mode of qualification. Placing all qualification by zones. Which simply makes no sense.

      Arguably(with all due respect to other zones), the best footballing zones in Africa is the West and North; so placing West vs West, North vs North in qualifiers simply takes out some of the best from the equation, thereby diluting the level of the main competition itself.

      I would advise there should be immediate ramification to the qualifier process or it would simply be counterproductive to whatever positive CAF is aiming for.

    • Sheer inanity! I am with you both (Mr Hush and Kel) on this.

    What exactly guides the seeding and draws for these CAF competitions? How can two of the best teams in the continent be drawn to meet each other in the first round? Okay, even if CAF wants to insist on this weird zoning formula for whatever reason, why must the three best teams in West Africa be dumped into a group of six, with the two best facing against each other IN THE FIRST ROUND!
    By the way, are these countries going to manufacture new pitches before June or is CAF planning to subject theses hapless ladies to unwarranted torture on the same desert pitches rejected by FIFA for the Men World Cup qualifiers? What other evidence do we need to agree that women football is not being given its due regards, especially in Africa. Maybe I shouldn’t complain, after all, it’s CAF competition. The men also played on those “lush pitches”. Our Super Eagles can testify.

    CAF is probably one the most useless multinational organizations existing at the moment….and I’ve got no apologies for saying that. Where CAF to be in charge of the world cup, Germany, France, Brazil and Italy would be in the same qualifying group.
    oh…Africa my Africa. Who do us like this…?

  • glory 3 years ago

    While sensible continents are growing not any more at geometric progression but 5g speed, ooohhhh Africa running on a treadmill. Big big shame on CAF. A monumental disgrace CAF has suddenly become. The rest of the world will never stop making a laugh of this sick body.

    • Open letter to CAF:
      This continent needs her best teams to represent Africa at the world stage. You guys should get your sh*ts together, or else we shall continue to be laughing stock to the international football community.

      Yours truly.

  • This timing, second week in June means the proposed matches against The USA, Portugal and Jamaica will now be off as the dates clash

    • Dr. Drey 3 years ago

      Since it is a once-off qualifier series, I suggest NFF should apply for a shift in the date of the Ghana tie to enable the SF participate in the invitational tournament in the USA.

  • Everything about Africa is politics and greed! Every other things are secondary, even the days of Issa Hayatouh was far better, is it that we can’t get anything right in Africa?
