The Central African Republic football federation wants Caf to cancel its team’s 3-1 loss against the Stallions based on the fact that the winning goal was scored after injury time

The Central African Republic football federation (RCA) has lodged a complaint to Caf asking for the reexamination of the conditions surrounding its team’s 2013 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Burkina Faso on October 14 in Ouagadougou.

In a letter signed by president Patrice Edouard Ngaissona, the RCA urged Caf to invalidate the outcome of the encounter and declare its team the winner, arguing that the Stallions’ third goal was scored after injury time.

The Fauves began the meeting with a lone goal advantage from the first leg and were able to consolidate their chances to qualify for the showpiece after scoring a second but the hosts eventually pulled level on aggregate and scrambled a late goal to book their place.

“We have asked Caf to reexamine the serious irregularities that occurred during the game, the invalidation of the third goal scored out of time and the logical and uncontestable qualification of C.A.R for the 2013 Afcon in compliance with rules and regulations concerning Caf’s competitions,” Ngaissona told reporters in Bangui on Monday.
