Africa U-23 Cup of Nations qualifier: Ghana vs Togo postponed

Published on: 15 November 2018

Black Meteors' 2019 Africa U-23 Cup of Nations qualifiers against Togo has been postponed, according to Ghanasoccernet sources.

Ghana were supposed to play their West African counterparts from Togo in the first round of the competition on Friday, November 16 and the return leg in Lomé a week later.

However, the Ghana Football Association Normalization Committee wrote to the Confederation of African Football (CAF) for an extension due to the hosting of the 2018 Africa Women's Cup of Nations finals which begins on Saturday, November 17 at the refurbished Accra Sports Stadium.

The Black Meteors is set to host Togo on December 18 at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi and the second leg in Lomé four days later.

The winner of this tie will face Gabon in the next round.

The Total Africa U-23 Cup of Nations (known as the CAF U-23 Championship until 2015) is the main international football competition for CAF nations, played by under 23 years old players.

It is held every four years with the top three teams qualifying automatically to the Olympic Games and the fourth-placed finisher playing in a playoff against a team from the Asian Football Confederation.
