CAF bans Gambia for 2 years

The Confederation of African Football’s (Caf) Executive Committee has suspended The Gambia Football Association from all Caf competitions for two years, for deliberately falsifying players’ ages.

Last month, The Gambia was disqualified from the qualifiers for the continent’s under-20 championship for fielding overage players.

Now, The Gambia has been banned from all Caf competitions – including the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations – in line with a clause in Caf’s regulations.

It states “for any deliberate intention to foul or cheat in any matter involving the falsification of documents, the defaulting association shall be suspended for two years from all Caf competitions.
