The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has set the 11th of November as the deadline for countries to declare interest in staging the 2025 Africa Cup of Nations.
Initial host Guinea was stripped of rights because of concerns over infrastructure and facilities.
CAF inspection teams will tour bidding countries from the 5th to the 25th of January next year in its quest to find a suitable replacement for Guinea before the hosts or co-hosts will be announced on the 10th of February.
Several countries such as Morocco, Algeria, South Africa and Senegal have already expressed interests while Nigeria’s early interest to step in and co-host with Benin has gone quiet since Amaju Pinnick’s exit as the NFF president.
Flamingos captain Alvine Dah-Zossu has stated that the team will do everything possible to beat Germany and win the third-place match at the U-17 women’s World Cup in India.
The Flamingos lost 6-5 on penalties against Colombia in the semi-final on Wednesday and reacting on social media, Dah-Zossu apologised to Nigerians and stated that the team have picked themselves up and will do all they can to win the bronze medal.
The Flamingos will face Germany on Saturday by 12pm Nigerian time in the 3rd place match.
