Zambia Headed Home after CAF Cancels U17 AFCON Due to Covid-19 Threat


The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has cancelled the Total Under-17 Africa Cup of Nations that was scheduled to kickoff this weekend with some teams already in Morocco. CAF announced in a terse press statement that the tournament had been cancelled after an emergency meeting with the host nation that raised concerns over the covid-19 threat and visa delays. The Zambia under-17 national team is already in Rabat ahead of the tournament where they are in Group A alongside Morocco, Ivory Coast and Uganda.
