Cape Verde left out in cold by the world football body

Official SirVic

THE FIFA Appeal Committee Tuesday informed the Cape Verdean Football Association (FCF) that it has thrown out its appeal over the decision to award victory in the World Cup qualifier against Tunisia to the Carthage Eagles.
Cape Verde defeated Tunisia 2-0 in Tunis to qualify for the final round of the Brazil 2014 World Cup qualifying series, but the Carthage Eagles petitioned FIFA following the discovery that Cape Verde fielded an ineligible player in the game.

After investigating the case, FIFA declared the match in question forfeited and awarded 3-0 in favour of Tunisia, meaning that the Cape Verde Islands did not progress to round three of the FIFA World Cup African zone qualifiers having dropped to second place in Group B with nine points, while Tunisia advance having finished first with 14 points.
