Morocco to replace Kenya as hosts of 2018 African Nations Championship

Morocco will replace Kenya as hosts of the 2018 African Nations Championship –Chan.
The emergency committee of the African Football Confederation -CAF unanimously decided to give Morocco the green light ahead of Equatorial Guinea after a meeting.
Meanwhile a third candidate, Ethiopia, was not considered because it did not provide a letter of guarantee from its government.
Reports say original hosts Kenya fell behind with five-venue preparations for the biennial 16-team tournament, which runs from January 12-February 4, leading them to be stripped of the hosting rights last month.
