The Ethiopian Football Federation (EFF) has said that its World Cup qualifying match against Sierra Leone should have been abandoned because of dense fog.

It has complained to football's world governing body, Fifa, as the game, which was being played in Morocco, was delayed several times because of the difficult weather conditions.

The half-time break was extended and the referee stopped the game twice in the second half before the match ended after 15 minutes of added time.

''It should have been postponed,'' an EFF statement said.

The match ended goalless.

Ethiopia is playing its home games outside of the country as it does not have stadiums that meet international standards.

Fifa has not commented.
