As the continent gears up for its African Nations Cup qualifiers, concerns are growing that the deadly disease could ruin the games. Some argue soccer players and fans from Ebola-hit countries could spread the virus. The message from Africa's soccer governing body, the Confederation of African Football (CAF), was clear: Ivory Coast will be expelled from the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations if they refuse to host Ebola-hit Sierra Leone in their qualifier on Saturday (06.09.2014). CAF's statement prompted Ivory Coast to allow the match to be held in Abidjan after all.

The Rwanda Football Federation on Tuesday appealed against its disqualification from 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers for fielding a player with double nationality. The Confederation of African Football imposed the sanction after an investigation into Rwandan striker Dady Birori, who plays for Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) club Vita as Agiti Tady Etekiama. The Rwandan federation has since contested the disqualification on grounds that the player acquired Rwanda nationality before that of DRC. CAF said that its probe found that the DR Congo-born striker was born December 12, 1986 as indicated in his Rwandan passport, while his Congolese

Football lovers in Africa are generally disappointed about the early exit of Africa's five representatives in the FIFA World Cup 2014 in Brazil. But the signs were already there for such a development. And squabbles over finances and administrative arrangements are a large contributing factor. However, since FIFA allocated 1.5 million dollars to each of the 32 participating teams, the payment of bonuses to African players should not be a problem, if based on prior agreement, which should be available...

LONDON (Reuters) - Three members of Africa's "youth club" - Rwanda, Zambia and Zimbabwe - offer some of the fastest-growing working populations in the world, if only investors can capitalise on that.

None of the three makes it to the flagship frontiers stock index,...
