AFCON2023Q: Scrap away goals rule, Ekong begs CAF

Super Eagles CB, William Troost-Ekong says, the away goal rule as applied in CAF competitions is one thing he would like to see go if the governing body considers making future rule changes.

In a chat with BRL, Ekong urged CAF to consider other formats of elimination and qualification for tournaments, without away goals playing such a big part.

“The away goal rule is one that I would like CAF to change, it’s very difficult to take,” the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, bronze medal winner said.

“I think we were the only continent that decided on the World Cup spot like that, but hopefully for the next World Cup, that will be better.

“Morocco did well to open up some more space for us and as we did in 2018, if you are group winner you should be qualifying for the
tournament and It shouldn’t come down to away goals and playoffs.”
