South Africa's Danny Jordaan withdraws from FIFA Council election

The 2015 African Nations' Cup final could very well be moved from Morocco to the venue that hosted the 2010 World Cup final, Soccer City Stadium in Johannesburg.
The U.S. Department of Justice has alleged that two senior South African bid officials were involved in bribing FIFA executives to vote for South Africa.

South African football head Danny Jordaan withdrew as a candidate for a place on the FIFA Council as the governing body was deciding which African officials passed eligibility tests and would be allowed to stand in elections next week.

Jordaan, the president of the South African Football Association and organiser of the 2010 World Cup, was withdrawn from the FIFA vote by his association, the Confederation of African Football said on Tuesday in an internal memo sent to its member countries and obtained...

Egypt and DR Congo continue perfect starts to qualifying campaign

Mohamed Salah put Egypt on course for victory against Ghana.

Mohamed Salah and Abdallah El-Said struck goals in either half as Egypt took control of their World Cup qualifying group with a 2-0 win against Ghana at the Borg El-Arab Stadium in Alexandria.

Roma forward Salah converted a 43rd-minute penalty after Harrison Afful had fouled Mahmoud Trezeguet and El-Said fired home on the turn into the bottom corner following a swift counter-attack in the 86th minute.

Victory keeps Hector Cuper's side top of Group E after they won 2-1 in Congo in their opening match,...

CAF elects Guinea and Ghana officials to FIFA Council

CAF has elected new officials to fill FIFA Council seats.

CAIRO -- African football leaders have elected officials from Guinea and Ghana to fill two new seats on the FIFA Council.

The Confederation of African Football says Almamy Kabele Camara and Kwesi Nyantakyi earned enough votes in a four-candidate contest on Thursday.

They will complete a seven-member African delegation at an Oct. 13-14 meeting of the expanded FIFA Council, chaired by president Gianni Infantino.

The meeting in Zurich should begin talks to expand the 2026 World Cup to 40 teams and...

Guinea must select next coach wisely or miss chance at World Cup berth

Gernot Rohr
Former Niger manager Gernot Rohr is among the five candidates to take over the Guinea national team.

This week, Guinea's football federation published a list of 15 prospective candidates for their vacant national team job in what is becoming more of a frequent, yet still somewhat bizarre ritual, in African football.

This shortlist of 15 had apparently been selected from an even longer list of applicants, claimed to be 43, and on Friday it was reduced even further to five finalists.

For some it would have come as encouragement of the prospect of an intriguing job. Guinea might be among the...

CAF World Cup qualifying: Algeria, Cameroon, Nigeria all drawn together

Nigeria celebrate
Nigeria face a stiff test to qualify for the 2018 World Cup.

Three of the five African teams at the 2014 World Cup have been drawn in the same group to qualify for the 2018 edition.

Only one of Algeria, Cameroon and Nigeria will play at the next tournament in Russia after the Confederation of African Football made the draw for five qualifying groups on Friday.

The three traditional powers were grouped with Zambia.

Just the group winners in all of five four-team pools will advance to the 32-team tournament in Russia.

Ivory Coast, who aim to reach their fourth...
