FIFA and CAF have postponed the World Cup 2022 qualifying match between Guinea and Morocco due to political unrest.
Military personnel seized Guinea President in what is believed to be a coup on Sunday which led CAF to announce the postponement of the game earlier scheduled for Monday.
According to a statement released on Sunday by CAF, the continental football governing body and FIFA unanimously agreed for the game to be postponed.
The statement reads;
“The current political and security situation in Guinea is quite volatile and is being closely monitored by FIFA and CAF.
“To ensure the safety and security of all players and to protect all match officials, FIFA and CAF have decided to postpone the FIFA World Cup 2022 qualifying match Guinea vs. Morocco, which had scheduled to be hosted in Conakry, Guinea, on Monday 6 September.
“Rescheduling information will be made available at a later date.”
