Familiar Chaos in African Football As Cape Verde Thrown Out Of World Cup

September 24, 2013 by David Bolt

You may have noticed that FIFA two weeks ago delayed the publication of its ranking list. This wasn’t due to any technical problems, but because the ranking of two African teams was dependent on the results of a decision taken by FIFA’s disciplinary committee.

The ranking list was of great importance as the draw for the third and final round of World Cup Qualifying in Africa (CAF), with the ten group winners from the second round being drawn into five two-legged ties, with the five winners advancing to the world cup. The ten teams are split into two pots of five, with one team from each pot being drawn against each other. Which pot a team is put into is determined by their FIFA ranking.

As we mentioned over the last week, Dutch club Vitesse planned to pay tribute in their home match against PEC Zwolle to the British paratroopers involved in the attempted liberation of their city Arnhem during Operation Market Garden in September 1944, this is an update on how the day went.  Veterans of the British 1st Airbourne Division were welcomed to the match and the Vitesse support even unveiled a tifo featuring the colours of the regiment with the famous Nijmegen Bridge in the background of their display.

Vitesse Arnhem will commemorate the Battle of Arnhem this weekend by wearing a strip consisting of the regiment’s famous colours. 

The British 1st Airbourne Division were heavily involved in the attempted liberation of Arnhem in September 1944 from Nazi occupation.  The division lost three quarters of its strength (8000 men) behind enemy lines during the failed mission before the remaining survivors eventually withdrew after nine days of fighting.
