If Ghana is suspended, then Kenya, who are third in the Group F may revive their chances of qualifying to the 2019 Afcon

Harambee Stars coach Sebastien Migne might need to follow the events in Ghana after Fifa issued an ultimatum to the government to withdraw the case against Ghana Football Association.

The world Football Governing body gave Ghanaian government until August 27 to withdraw a court case meant to liquidate the embattled Ghana FA.

The authorities imposed an indefinite suspension on all football related activities in the country last June, in the wake of corruption scandals exposed in a documentary produced by undercover journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.

But with Kenya set to face Ghana in African Cup of Nations Qualifiers late in September, Migne, who is yet to name his provisional squad, might be praying secretely that the Ghanaian authorities drag their feet in complying with the Fifa directive.

Fifa has already named a two-man liason team to oversee football in the country even as the government insists that the entire system needs a clean-up before football could return hence its decision to scrap the current Ghana FA executive committee.

If Ghana is suspended, then Kenya, who are third in the Group F may revive their chances of qualifying to the 2019 Afcon to be staged in Cameroon.

"Furthermore, other member associations could not entertain sporting contact with the GFA. We thank you for taking note of the above," Fifa said in a statement.

Ghana’s chance of hosting the 2019 Women's Afcon and the Black Maidens' participation in 2018 Fifa Women's U-17 World Cup are also in the line.
