9 March 2021 – The 2021 CAF U-17 junior tournament that was scheduled to kick off in Morocco this coming weekend has been cancelled.
The CAF Emergency Committee took the decision to cancel the tournament after taking into consideration various issues among others:
• The resurgence of the Covid-19 pandemic
• Increased restrictions on international travel
• That the tournament now served little purpose after FIFA cancelled the subsequent U-17 World Cup that was scheduled for Peru later this year.
Amajimbos had been paired in Group C together with Cameroon, Senegal and Mali.
SAFA CEO, Advocate Motlanthe is scheduled to address the squad on Tuesday morning at the SAFA National Technical Centre before disbanding the camp.
