E. Guinea women’s team disqualified from Olympics

Nigeria says it has been told by FIFA that its women’s football

team will play Cameroon and not Equatorial Guinea in Olympic

qualifying after the Equatorial Guineans were disqualified for an

ineligible player.

The Nigeria Football Federation says in a statement Friday that

FIFA has ”ejected Equatorial Guinea from the race” for the 2012

London Olympics. NFF says it was informed of the decision – and its

new opponent in final qualifiers – in a letter from FIFA.

The world football body suspended Equatorial Guinea striker Jade

Boho Sayo for two months Tuesday over apparent nationality issues,

removing her from the ongoing Women’s World Cup. The decision does

not affect the team’s participation in that tournament.
