Lebanon Pull Out Of Asian Cup 2007 Qualifiers

AFC confirms Lebanonís withdrawal from AFC Asian Cup 2007 :frownani:

KUALA LUMPUR: AFC has confirmed this morning that the AFC Competitions Committee has accepted Lebanonís request to withdraw from the AFC Asian Cup 2007 qualifiers, following the letter received from the Lebanon Football Association on 31 July 2006.

The Competitions Committee decided to approve the withdrawal without any penalty or sanction under Article 25 (g) of the regulations, which deals with Force Majeure. The current situation in Lebanon falls within this legal categorisation.

With regard to the qualifying competition for AFC Asian Cup 2007, the following decisions were made:

(i) Lebanonís match against Kuwait on 22 February 2006 to be considered null and void.

(ii) Group D shall be considered as a group of three teams, being Australia, Bahrain and Kuwait.

Lebanon had drawn 1-1 against Kuwait on Match Day 1 and were scheduled to clash with Bahrain on August 16. Future encounters were against Australia on August 31 (Sydney), Bahrain on September 6 (Beirut), Kuwait on October 11 (Kuwait City) and Australia on November 15 (Beirut).

It's a sad situation. What the country is going through right now, it makes football really meaningless in their lives.

Never let desperation make you gullible.
