Source: CAF: Zimbabwe abstained from punishment and may be punished


A source at the Confederation of African Football (CAF) has denied that Zimbabwe has refused to go into the final match without telling them any reasons, just hours before Egypt face the opening of the 2019 African Nations Cup on Friday.

The Zimbabwean team refused to go to Maran on Thursday at the scheduled date, which is 7 pm, the source told the Yalla Koura news agency on Thursday.

The same source said that the absence of al-Muran came without notice to the African Union in a formal manner, which may expose them to sanctions.

The African Nations Cup will be held from June 21 to July 19, and the opening match will be held at 10 pm on Friday.
