CAF bans Benin from youth competitions

05 Sep 2014, 17:20

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has slapped a two year ban on Benin from all age group competitions after finding the Association guilty of fielding four over age players in their second round clash against Mali during qualifiers towards the 2015 African Youth Championship.

In making its deliberation, CAF referred to a circular it sent to all Associations across Africa that clearly stated all players who were to participate in the competition should have been born not earlier than 1 January 1998.

However, Benin was found guilty of fielding four players namely Ibilola Aron, Ogoubiyi Oluwa, Oreko Evode and Amoussou Tony all of whom were born outside that date.

For that reason, and as confirmed in their portal cafonline.com, Benin gets the ban from all age group competitions –U17, U20 and U23.

The four players had helped Benin see off Mali with a 1-0 aggregate in the second round to book a date in the third and final round of qualifiers against Tunisia. Their place will now be taken by Mali.

In May, CAF disqualified Gambia from further participation in the U20 qualifiers after being found guilty of fielding five ineligible players against Liberia. They later received a two year ban from all CAF organized competitions
