Egypt and Morocco have had several players and officials suspended and fines have also been handed down to both FA’s following the fight that saw players from both countries have a go at each other during their Africa Cup of Nations quarter-final match.
The Confederation of African Football (CAF) announced the sanctions today, ahead of Egypt’s Semi-Final clash with host nation Cameroon. The Pharaohs of Egypt will be without left-back Marwan Daoud and assistant coach Rogerio De Sa.
The Egyptian Football Association was also fined $25,000, while the Moroccan FA was fined the sum of $10,000. An additional $100,000 fine ($50,000 suspended) was also imposed on the Egyptian FA for failure to appear at the “pre-match press conference”.
Morocco will be without Soufiane Boufal and Soufian Chakla for their FIFA 2022 World Cup playoffs versus DR Congo as both players were both charged with “violent behavior” during the clash with Egypt.
