The 2019 Africa Cup of Nations will kick off tomorrow on the June 21st, Egypt will host the 32nd African Cup of Nations, but that wasn’t how it was intended to be. Cameroon was named as the host nation back in 2018. However, failure to provide adequate infrastructure at match venues, combined with the conflict between French- and English-speakers in the country, prompted Africa’s CAF football federation to withdraw Cameroon’s hosting rights in January and give Egypt of hosting the event.
