Lesotho pull out of U20 qualifier over Ebola concerns

15 August 2014, 13:36

Abuja - Lesotho said on Friday they have pulled out of this weekend's final 2015 African Youth Championship against Nigeria because of concerns about an outbreak of Ebola 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," said Lesotho Football Federation official Limtho Mokhethi.

The Senegalese officials appointed for the under-20 game have already arrived in the northern Nigeria city of Kaduna, where the match was to have been played.

African football's governing body CAF will now have to decide on the overall winners of the final qualifier, as a second leg in Lesotho is not expected to take place.

The 2015 African Youth Championship will be played in Senegal from March 8.
