Ghana’s Normalization team led by Dr. Kofi Amoah is patiently waiting for FIFA’s response concerning the suspension of the country’s Cup of Nations qualifier against Sierra Leone.
Ghana’s Nations Cup qualifier against their West African neighbours was cancelled after Sierra Leone were handed an indefinite ban by FIFA for ”government interference”.
The government of Sierra Leone decided to dismiss FA President Isha Johanssen as well as General Secretary Christopher Kamara for allegedly involving themselves in ‘corrupt practices’.
This, force the world’s football governing body [FIFA] to place a ban on Sierra Leone and also preventing them from playing their Nations Cup qualifier double header clash with Ghana.
Ghanaians are therefore wondering whether or not the Black Stars will be awarded automatic six points following cancellation of the qualifiers.
But Madam Lucy Quist, a member of Ghana’s normalization committee has disclosed her outfit are waiting for a response from FIFA having written to them for clarification.
“What we did was that we wrote to FIFA about the situation after we realized Sierra Leone were unable to honour the game,” she told the media.
“So for now we are still waiting for FIFA to respond on that, as to whether we will be awarded all points or note that is up to FIFA. We wrote to them and they confirmed receiving it so we are now waiting for their response.” she added.
The Black Stars currently are third in Group F of the qualifiers with 3 points after two round of matches.
