Four coun­tries bid to host 2017 Af­con

The Star Early Edition - - SPORT -

The Con­fed­er­a­tion of African (Caf) Foot­ball says Egypt is among four can­di­dates to host the 2017 African Cup of Na­tions. Caf says Al­ge­ria, Gabon and Ghana are also be­ing con­sid­ered, while bids from Kenya, Su­dan and Zim­babwe were ruled out for not meet­ing “set cri­te­ria.” The African foot­ball body is look­ing for a re­place­ment host for Libya, which with­drew over se­cu­rity and or­gan­i­sa­tional con­cerns. Caf will de­cide on the new host next year.
