Caf rejects Egypt''s replay calls 6/7/2007
The Confederation of African Football has refused an appeal from the Egyptian Football Association (EFA) demanding a replay of their Group Two 2008 African Cup of Nations qualifier in Mauritania.

The decision was made at a meeting of the African Nations Cup committee in Cairo.

"The incident that occurred during the match did not affect either of the teams or the spirit of the game," a Caf spokesman said.

The Group Two game on Sunday in Nouakchott ended in a 1-1 draw but was held up for 40 minutes during the half-time break as the home fans invaded the pitch.

Egypt, the reigning African Champions, were leading 1-0 at the end of the first half and the EFA claimed that their players were scared during the second half which affected their performance and the match result.

"The Egyptians did not show any signs of insecurity during or after the game and they shook hands with their opponents after the final whistle," the official added.

Egypt are still top of the group with eight points, Burundi are two points behind while Mauritania and Botswana both four points each.
