Namibia play Burkina Faso under protest



Namibia played a 2012 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier on Saturday under protest as they claimed Cameroon-born Burkina Faso defender Herve Zengue was ineligible.

Namibia Football Association secretary general Barry Rukoro submitted the protest to South African referee Jerome Damon just before the kick-off of the Group F match.

Zengue was born in Cameroon in 1984 and made his debut for the Burkinabe Stallions in a 4-0 victory over Namibia in Ouagadougou three months ago.

Stallions Portuguese coach Paulo Duarte told AFP that Zengue was born in Cameroon, but said the footballer from Chechnya club Terek Grozny is now a naturalised Burkinabe because his wife comes from that country.
