AFCON matches moved over poor pitch

Poor pitch at the Africa Cup of Nations have seen an unprocedent switch of venues for quarter finals and semi finals matches, the confederation of Africa football said on Wednesday.

There have been concerns for more than a week over the poor surface at Doualas Japoma stadium.Hosts Cameroon are still scheduled to take on Gambia there in the quarter finals on Saturday but it will be the last game at the stadium.

Two further matches that had been scheduled to be staged at Japoma stadium, a quarter final on Sunday and a semi final next Wednesday have been moved to Yaoundes Ahmadou Ahidjo stadium.

Effectively it means a quarter final double header at the new venue on Sunday. Egypt will take Morocco in the first matches, while Senegals opponents for the second game will only be known after the completion of the last 16 later on Wednesday. The federation is ensuring safety in the field
