The Cameroon side has been notified accordingly.”

The inspection team were scheduled to visit Cameroon for eight days from August 20 to assess the country’s progress as it prepares to host the competition.

The 2019 tournament in Cameroon will feature 24 teams instead of 16 for the first time in history and will be held in June and July rather than January and February.

Cameroon’s indomitable lions’ are the defending champions having won the 2017 title earlier this year in Gabon on penalties against Egypt.
