As it struggles with infrastructural development, the Confederation of African Football chief, Ahmad Ahmad, on Saturday said the country is “not even ready to host four teams”.
Ahmad was addressing a press conference in Ouagadougou, where he had visited to attend the men’s and women’s Faso Cup finals.

Africa Cup of Nations 2019: Cameroon ‘not ready’ to host tournament, says CAF chief Ahmad Ahmad
“Cameroon isn’t ready to welcome even four teams,” said Ahmad, the president of the Confederation of African Football (CAF).
The CAF president also said that there will be an inspection by experts and a specialized audit firm, to determine whether the three-week tournament can be held in Cameroon.
Plan B according to him would be opening the tenders again so that other countries can participate.
Morocco and Algeria have already demonstrated ability to host the CAN 2019.
