Under-23 Afcon resumes next month

Sports Reporter

The final round of qualifying matches for the Under-23 Africa Cup of Nations has been rescheduled to September 2-10.

  This is from the previously announced June dates. The decision followed a recommendation by the Confederation of African Football (CAF) executive committee at its last meeting in April in Cairo, Egypt, due to the proximity of the initial dates to the recently ended Africa Cup of Nations tournament in Egypt.

  Fixtures for the final round of qualifiers:

South Africa vs Zimbabwe

Zambia vs Congo

Ghana vs Algeria

Cameroon vs Tunisia

Ivory Coast vs Guinea

Sudan vs Nigeria

Morocco vs Mali

  The seven winners after the two leg matches will join the host Egypt for the finals; which are scheduled for November 8-22.

  From there the top three finishers will represent the African continent at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.

  The SA Under – 23 side will host Zimbabwe in the first leg, and then travel to Harare on September 10 for the return leg.
