Liberia Replaces Gabon In GOtv Wafu Cup

Liberia will take their place in Group B of the GOtv Wafu Cup which starts on Thursday as Gabon withdraws from the competition. Gabon were initially entered into the draw for the eight-team competition which starts from 21-28 November, 2013 in Ghana but have had to pull-out due to some problems back home. In their place, Liberia comes in and will compete in the group which includes defending champions Togo, Niger and Senegal. Hosts, Ghana, who play Sierra Leone in the opening fixture, are paired in Group A with Benin and Burkina Faso. The competition is reserved for only home-based players of member nations. Winners of the two groups will progress to the final while the second placed team in each group will vie for third position.
