Swaziland pull out of 2013 Afcon


SWAZILAND have withdrawn from the 2013 African Nations Cup, just a week before the side were due to play the first leg of a preliminar­y round match, the country’s football associatio­n have confirmed. Swaziland were scheduled to meet the Seychelles in a first round tie on January 6 and 20 but pulled out because of financial constraint­s, officials said. The withdrawal is likely to lead to a fine from Caf and a possible ban from the 2015 tournament.
