AWCON 2022: Financially strapped DR Congo Queens red carded off field by CAF.

A sad news Friday hit African women football when the Confederation of African Football (CAF) flashed the red card on one of the strong teams of African female football, DR Congo ladies off field meaning they cannot continue a dream of lifting the African trophy talk less of moving to the world championship.

DR Congo failed to show for a match in Equatorial Guinea which was for the first leg of their first round tie in Malabo on Wednesday, citing logistical and financial problems.

The Equatorial Guinea federation had said it planned to honor the return fixture in Kinshasa on Sunday despite the first leg not being played.

However, the Confederation of African Football (CAF) has cancelled the second leg and expelled DR Congo from the competition in accordance with tournament regulations.

Equatorial Guinea becomes the second countries through to the second round after Djibouti was given a bye when their opponents Rwanda withdrew.
