Confederation of African Football (Caf) have cancelled Sierra Leone’s Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) qualifying games with Ghana due to the west African country’s football federation’s suspension by Fifa.

The world football body suspended Sierra Leone’s football body over government interference in the body’s affairs, an action against Fifa’s rules and regulations.

“Qualifier matches Ghana vs Sierra Leone & Sierra Leone vs Ghana on the 11th and 14th of October respectively have been cancelled,” Caf said in a tweet on Wednesday.

It added that the Sierra Leone Football Association had failed to supply the guarantees requested by Fifa to allow the suspension to be lifted.

Sierra Leone was given a deadline of 1700 GMT on Tuesday to come up with guarantees that it had resolved the issue.

The issue is about a move by the country’s anti-corruption commission to sack Sierra Leone Football Federation (SLFA) president Isha Johansen and general secretary Christopher Kamara during an ongoing probe into corruption and mismanagement.
