Five countries in battle to be named Nations Cup hostsThe Confederation of African Football (CAF) has selected Cameroon to host the 2019 AFCON game while Ivory Coast and Guinea have got the chance to host the 2021 and 2023 games.

After disclosing the hosts, CAF President, Issa Hayatou, said no decision will has been made as to who will host the 2017 game after Libya announced its withdrawal from hosting the continental game.

Executive Secretary of CAF, El Amrani, said the football body has decided to uphold its previous decision to ban matches in the three Ebola affected countries in West Africa until further notice is given by the World Health Organization.

During the closing session of CAF’s annual meeting inside the AU Headquarters in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa on late Saturday, the Confederation also pledged its support for Joseph Sepp Blatter for the upcoming FIFA Presidency ballot.

“We wouldn’t have trusted him (Blatter) had we not seen what he had done for us in the past. He has helped us host the World Cup. Actually, I would have been FIFA President by now had it not been for African’s rejection for the post back in 2002,” the President said.
