The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has stripped Guinea of its right to host the Africa Cup of Nations in 2025, as confirmed by the body’s president.
CAF president Patrice Motsepe made the announcement from Guinea’s capital of Conakry on Friday, revealing that the high-profile continental competition will head elsewhere due to a lack of sufficient infrastructure and facilities.
“The 2025 Nations Cup allocated to Guinea will not take place there because we’re not yet ready in Guinea,” said Motsepe, after meeting the leading members of Guinea’s transitional government.
