The African Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier between Kenya and Sierra Leone has been called off.

This is after Confédération Africaine de Football (CAF) cited a suspension on Sierra Leone given by world football governing body FIFA.

“Seeing that Sierra Leone is still under suspension by FIFA, please note that the above-mentioned match will not take place,” said CAF through a statement.

They then promised to communicate the status of the group once the Executive Committee makes a final decision.

“The status of the group will be communicated later on once the competent body takes a final decision in this regards,” read the statement.

Harambee Stars are on the brink of qualifying for the showpiece event in Cameroon next year, having won two matches and drawn two, losing one in Group F. 

The tie was scheduled for November 18 at the Moi International Sports Centre Kasarani.
