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SWAZILAND have withdrawn from the 2013 African Nations Cup, just a week before the side were due to play the first leg of a preliminary round match, the country’s football association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.
