The Court of Arbitration for Sport said Equatorial Guinea’s appeal hearing seeks to annul a ban from the 2018 and 2020 Women’s Africa Cup of Nations. The 2018 tournament is Africa’s qualifying route for the World Cup in France.
The 2020 Olympic and 2018-2020 AFCON bans involve a Brazil-born midfielder, Camila Nobre do Carmo Oliviera.
The Confederation of African Football said in imposing the two-tournament ban last year that Camila played at different tournaments with passports showing different names and birth dates.
The ban followed a protest by the Malian soccer federation, after their women’s team was eliminated from 2016 AFCON qualifying by Equatorial Guinea. Mali were allowed to advance to the final tournament.
A further corruption of that two-leg qualifying round last April involved an attempt to bribe match officials.
