CAN 2019: Algeria Submits Candidature to Replace Cameroon

 Indicators are rife at that could lose the opportunity to host the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations because of the delay in infrastructure work. This is so because reports say Algeria just submitted its candidature and this may oblige the Confederation of African Football (CAF) give the privilege to Algeria given the available infrastructure. "We are following up for a possible relocation with kind interest but until the contrary is proven, "said FAF President Kheïreddine Zetchi during a briefing held at the Sidi Moussa National Technical Center.”I mentioned Algeria's interest in hosting the next CAN in an interview I had discussed it with the new CAF President Ahmad Ahmad on the sidelines of the recent 67th Congress of FIFA in Bahrain. The discussion was fruitful. I found him motivated to bring a new blood to African football as his predecessor (Issa Hayatou)” concluded the new boss of Algerian football.

In a tweet, Patrick Mboma decries the sluggishness in infrastructure development. He is quoted to have added that he started raising this alarm 2 years ago and that something should be done to rescue Cameroon from humiliation.
