Ghana Banned From FIFA U17 Qualifiers And Fined $100,000 Over (Football Age)

The National under 17 women's team has been banned from competing in the next two editions of the FIFA Under 17 Women's African Qualifiers. The country was also fined $100,000 by the CAF Disciplinary Board.

This follows Morocco's protest to the football governing body that Ghana filed some two players with "football age". Morocco filed a protest that Ghana's Nancy Amoh and Rasheeda Shahadu falsified their dates of birth and are above 17 years.

Subsequently, the Ghana Football Association (GFA) was offered the chance to defend against the said claims by providing the CAF Disciplinary Board with a written response, however, they have since failed to provide a statement as of yet.

Though the GFA has not stated why it failed to file a defense, Ghana can still challenge this decision before the CAF Appeal Board.

Many football fans have expressed disappointment in the latest development and have called on the GFA to be more proactive.
