Ebola: Lesotho Pull Out Of AYC Qualifier Against Nigeria

Lesotho have pulled out of this weekend’s final 2015 African Youth Championship against Nigeria after they expressed concerns over the outbreak of Ebola virus disease in the country.

“We have contacted the Confederation of African Football (CAF) and copied the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) that we will not be coming for this game,” Lesotho Football Federation official Limtho Mokhethi told AfricanFootball.com on Friday.

The Senegalese officials appointed for the game have already arrived Kaduna, where the match will be played.

CAF are now to decide on the overall winners of this final qualifier.

The 2015 AYC will be staged by Senegal from March 8.
