DAKAR – South Africa will be well represented at Tuesday's CAF Awards ceremony in Dakar, Senegal.
Safa president Danny Jordaan is in the city not only to attend the ceremony but be part of the decision on who will host the 2019 Afcon tournament in June. CAF will on Wednesday make the announcement on who between South Africa and Egypt will replace Cameroon as the 2019 hosts.
The continental football body stripped Cameroon of the rights to host Afcon after the Central African country was deemed far from being ready to host the event which now will consist of 24 teams.
The tournament has been expanded from 16 to 24 teams and will now take place from June as from next year.
After several inspections, CAF took the decision late last year that Cameroon was not ready to host the expanded tournament, leaving South Africa and Egypt as replacement candidates.
