GAMBIA have re-sent an appeal hoping to sway African football body Confederation of African Football (CAF) to strip Togo of some points.
Togo’s Sparrow Hawks being deducted represent good news for Gambia who would then be placated with the points to boost its chances of qualifying for the Africa Cup of Nations 2019.
The Scorpions at the moment could go to Cairo but must win to grasp the spoils off Algeria who would be playing at home and hope results in the Togo-Benin final qualifier go their way.
Gambia is arguing Togo fielded an ineligible player in Adewale Olufade who CAF concedes was erroneously registered twice but maintain he is Togolese.
The country’s Football House is however disputing it and have lodged in a letter urging a CAF review of its initial ruling.
In a communiqué issued yesterday, Gambia Football Federation hints CAF has acknowledged receiving the appeal with sitting over the case likely to commence February 10th.
