The Moroccan beach soccer selection is qualified for the AfCON scheduled for October 21 to 30, 2022 in Mozambique, by decision of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) after the abandonment of the qualifying match by Côte d’Ivoire against the Lions of the Atlas.
The information published on the website of the Royal Moroccan Football Federation (FRMF) notes that “the Commission for the organization and development of futsal and beach soccer of CAF has decided to apply Articles 54 and 56 of the chapter 30 of the playoff regulations, under which it is the Moroccan selection which is considered victorious (3-0) against Côte d’Ivoire in the second leg of the AfCON playoffs”.
The FRMF recalls that in the middle of a match between the two teams, the Ivorian selection decided not to continue the match following the penalty whistled by the Libyan referee of the game, Yahya Abdelghani in favor of the Morocco team. The match was however won by Côte d’Ivoire (7-6) in Abidjan. But the texts of CAF in this sense are very clear and have caught up with the Ivorian selection.
