The Eswatini football Association (EFA) has failed to meet CAF’s Wednesday deadline to get an alternative venue to host their afcon qualifier match.
As a result the home ground advantage will be forfeited to Sihlangu opponents Guinea-Bissau, as per CAF directive.
Sihlangu play the African wild dog in a 2022 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers match on 26 March.
The EFA has been engaging neighbouring colleagues, the South African Football Association (SAFA) and the Mozambique Football Federation (MFF) in trying to secure a playing venue after the Mavuso Sports Centre was declared not fit to host a game of this magnitude.
EFA Marketing and Communications Officer Muzi Radebe could only say there was nothing positive to communicate on the venue search when reached by Swazi Observer last night.
