Ghana opponent Togo want opening 2015 AFCON qualifier moved from Guinea over Ebola scare
Ghana’s 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers opponent Togo have asked CAF to relocate their game against Guinea over fears of contracting the deadly Ebola virus.
The Hawks are to open group qualifiers away in Conakry where the deadly virus is prevalent.
Over 300 people are reported dead from the Ebola virus outbreak in Guinea which has now filtered into neighbouring Liberia and Sierra Leone.
And the Togo FA fear their players and officials will be at risk of getting infected once they are made to play their qualifier in Guinea.
The TFF said in a statement: “We are scared by the situation.”
Home games involving Sierra Leone are under scrutiny after authorities suspended all football matches within the country due to the virus outbreak.
CAF are however yet to rule on the requests made by the Togo Football Federation which will have an effect on Ghana’s game against Guinea in October.
The Black Stars will open their quakifying campaign at home to Uganda on September 6 before making the short trip to face Togo in their second game four days later.
Ghana will then play Guinea in October when the 2015 AFCON quaifiers resume.
