CAF Announces Punishment For Egypt Ahead Of Cameroon Semi-Final

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) through its Disciplinary Board has fined the Egyptian Football Federation $100,000 for failing to honour a pre-match press conference ahead of their quarter-final clash with Morocco last weekend.

This was disclosed in a statement on CAF’s website.

It comes ahead of the Pharaohs’ 2021 Africa Cup of Nations semi-final tie with hosts Cameroon on Thursday.

”The CAF Disciplinary Board has imposed a fine of 100,000 USD, with 50,000 suspended, to the Egypt Football Association (EFA) for breaching CAF TotalEnergies Africa Cup of Nations Cameroon 2021 media protocols and directives.

“This is after Egypt FA failed to honour a media press conference on 29 January 2022 ahead of their match against Morocco in the TotalEnergies Africa Cup of Nations quarterfinals in Ahmadou Ahidjo Stadium which is part of the obligations for all the participating teams,”

The statement read.

It added that “Egypt FA have 60 days to pay the 50,000 USD fine.”

Egypt came from behind to beat their North African rivals Tunisia 2-1 in the quarter-final clash.
