A drawing of lots by the ad-hoc Organizing Committee for the 11th African Games Brazzaville 2015 between Ghana and South Africa will be held on Monday, 14 September 2015 during its meeting at 08H00 GMT.

 

The draw between Ghana and South Africa will determine which team joins Cameroon as the representatives of Group B in the semis.

 

A 1-1 draw between Ghana and Cameroon on Sunday kept all three teams; Cameroon, Ghana and South Africa on two points each.

 

However as explained an Article 12 (D) of the regulations of the competition, Cameroon has the edge having scored more goals – two against one each by Ghana and South Africa.

 

Article 12 (D) states “In case of equality of points after all the group matches have been played, the classification of the teams shall be established according to the following criteria:

 

a) Greater number of points obtained in the matches between the concerned teams.

b) Goal difference resulting from the matches between the concerned teams.

c) Greater number of goals scored away from home in matches between the concerned teams (for the preliminary tournament only).

d) Superior goal difference from all the matches played in the group.

e) Greater number of goals scored in all the matches played in the group”.

 

Still tied, Article 39 thus becomes the final resort which states “cases unforeseen in these rules are to be decided upon by CAF competent bodies in accordance with the regulations of the African Cup of Nations”.

 

In the match itself, Hillia Kobblah scored for Ghana’s Black Queens on 32 minutes before Henriette Edoa drew level for ‘Les Lionnes’ on 54 minutes.

 

Group B winners Cameroon will face Nigeria at the semis whilst either Ghana or South Africa will be up against Cote d’Ivoire in the other semis clash.
