Why does Reunion not play in the African nations cup while their woman team plays this competition and even qualified for the finals by eliminating Egypt ?

I think that associate members of CAF are allowed to play in all competitions except the men's national A team competitions - i.e. the African Nations Cup. Zanzibar were in the same situation as Réunion - although I am not sure if Zanzibar is still an associate member of CAF.

Just read the report of the game, it also says that the teams met back in 1987 in a friendly match, but this doesn't seem to be in my archive - I've e-mailed the newspaper to try and find out about this other game.

I look for that on FFF website. He does not seem to have played with U-23 team. Didier Agathe left Aston Villa in 2007 and came back to Réunion.

Ah, so they were in September not August. That explains why I couldn't find any reports of the matches in August, when I had a quick look last week

Yes, lack of sleep meant my translation of months to figures went a bit wrong. Sorry about sending you on a wild goose chase!

No worries, I often end up finding something else useful unexpectedly (not on this occasion though).

Presumably, as an overseas territory I guess they weren't allowed. One of their best players Jean-Michel Fontaine has joined English 4th-tier team Fleetwood Town from JS Saint-Pierroise.



Does anybody know if Réunion or indeed Mayotte have any friendlies planned for the summer?

at that time, Turk and Caicos were accepted as FIFA member, so what is the difference ? Did they made any attempts recently?

Reunion is part of France. They aren't an overseas territory. TCI are self-governing overseas territory. In theory they could apply but considering FIFA already rejected Zanzibar and Kosovo, they wouldn't be accepted unless there was consensus among the existing members.

It's inter-FIFA politics too. Think the most recent World Soccer has a piece on TCI by Steve Menary which explains how their FA was only set up by Jack Warner to get another vote.

Then he should have set up a separate FA for Turks, and for Caicos to get 2 votes.

I read about a planned trip of Reunion to South America in 2014 (or 2015)..... A match against French Guyane was a possibility.....does anyone know if this tour took place finally? And what were the results?

It was supposed to be in June 2014 - I think it may have been cancelled.  It was supposed to fill the gap left by the non-holding of the Coupe de l'Outre Mer, I believe.

Good news.  No reason why they shouldn't be allowed to join.  It would make sense for Mayotte also to affiliate.

By the way, Réunion is already an associate member of COSAFA.
