Senegal may play away from home



Following the suspension of Senegal national team’s home ground Leopold Sedar Senghor Stadium by CAF in the wake of match incidents during the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Ivory Coast, officials in Dakar are contemplating where to play their home games during the 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifying.

Neighbouring nations Mauritania and Gambia have declared that the Teranga Lions could use their facilities, but that means most of their local supporters would not be able to travel to cheer their side during the campaign set to begin next match.

The Dakar stadium is the only sport arena in the West African country that can hold international football matches.

The Senegal FA says it will announce where to play its home matches before the competition kicks off.

The body declined to appeal CAF’s sanctions, which also include a $50,000 (R 432,000) fine.

After two games played in the 2014 World Cup qualifying, Senegal are leading Group J with four points ahead of Uganda, 2, Angola, 2 and Liberia, 1.
