Fifa has ruled that Emilio Nsue , the top scorer at this year’s Africa Cup of Nations, was never eligible to play for Equatorial Guinea throughout his 11-year international career. 🇬🇶

Nsue has been banned from international football for six months and the Equatoguinean federation (Feguifut) fined 150,000 Swiss francs (£131,000). 😔

Furthermore, a document published by Fifa on Monday detailed that Equatorial Guinea would be stripped of their World Cup 2026 qualification victories against Namibia and Liberia, with their opponents awarded a three-goal win. Both games ended 1-0 thanks to Nsue goals. 🤔

The judgment is based on Nsue playing competitive matches for Spain’s youth teams before featuring for Equatorial Guinea’s senior side without having been granted permission for a change of association.
