Confederation of African Football (CAF) has confirmed the African Cup of Nations (CAN) will take place as planned in Cameroon in January 2022.
Speaking at a 48 hour visit to the Central African country, CAF Secretary General Véron Mosengo-Omba on Wednesday clarified the situation owing to different speculative reports.
“The African Cup of Nations will be organized in this beautiful country in January 2022. That is clear. We have to be clear about that,” Véron Mosengo-Omba said during a press conference.
“Cameroon is a football country like no other. It is a great football country and Cameroon deserves to celebrate Africa at a very important level. But I am speaking on behalf of and under the control of the Secretary General to say and affirm, I repeat here: there is no alternative,” Cameroon Football Federation President Seidou Mbombo Njoya added.
The African Cup of Nations will begin on January 9 and conclude on February 6 with the final in capital city Yaounde.
