CAF Pronounces Itself On Group E Mathematics

CAF1All four teams in the group have an equal chance of qualification. Ghana has eight points, Uganda and Guinea on seven points each with Togo in that order with six points. Ghana will host Togo in Tamale whilst Guinea squares Uganda in Casablanca. With the current situation, it will perhaps be left with arithmetic to settle on the group’s two automatic slots.

Below, the regulation of the tournament explains the above scenario and how it will be settled in the event of a tie;

Article 14

In case of equality of points between two or more teams, after all the group matches, the ranking of the teams shall be established according to the following criteria:

14.1 Greater number of points obtained in the matches between the concerned teams;

14.2. Best goal difference in the matches between the concerned teams;

14.3. Greater number of goals scored in the matches between the concerned teams;

14.4. Greater number of away goals scored in the direct matches between the concerned teams;

14.5. Goal difference in all the group matches;

14.6. Greatest number of goals scored in all the group matches;

14.7. A drawing of lots by the Organising Committee of CAF.

It goes without saying that just a Cranes draw is enough in all ways irrespective of the Ghana/Togo results.
