Ghana’s last opponent before sealing qualification to the tournament, Cameroon reported to CAF who have now banned the West Africans, after the Local Organising Committee for Niger 2015, ruled that one out of the seven reported players is overaged

CAF in a letter to the GFA on Saturday refuted MRI analysis report conducted on the player by a Medical Centre in Ghana, claiming it contradicted that of two CAF medical experts which found the player in question, ineligible.

However, the Ghana Football Association protests against the decision claiming that none of the players is overaged as the two MRI tests conducted in the presence of a CAF medical officer and by a Consultant Radiologist in Ghana indicated that the player is really under 17.
