The Confederation of African Football (CAF) announced Tuesday that Egypt will host the 2019 African Cup of nations.

Egypt and South Africa were the only two countries to put forward their candidacies to replace Cameroon, which was stripped of hosting rights late last year for the June 15 to July 13 tournament.

Cameroon was stripped of the hosting rights due to ill-preparedness.

it would be the fifth time for them to organize the tournament as they have previously staged it in 1959, 1974, 1986 and 2006.
