The Confederation of African Football (Caf) has reportedly withdrawn the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations hosting rights from Cameroon.

The executive committee of Caf is set to meet in Accra on the sidelines of the Africa Women’s Cup of Nations to confirm the decision, an official of the football body told AFP.

Reports of the last two inspection visits to central African will be made during the meeting.

Caf inspectors recently traveled to the country, which last hosted the tournament in 1972, to check security, infrastructure, stadiums, and accommodation.

After the executive committee meeting, a decision whether Cameroon should continue as hosts of the June 15-July 13 African football showpiece is set to be made.

If Cameroon are rejected, Caf will have to launch a new application procedure to designate another host country for the biennial tournament.
