Egypt has been announced as the host nation of the 2019 AFCON finals. The announcement was made by the Confederation of African Football, CAF, on Tuesday after earlier agreeing for Wednesday.
Egypt was picked ahead of South Africa to replace Cameroon which was stripped off hosting rights last year.
Cameroon was stripped off after their preparation didn’t meet CAF’s expectation.
The tournament to be hosted by Egypt will be the first time 24 teams will be paraded against each other.
