Mozambique is considering the postponement of this month’s crunch 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) Group F tie against Cameroon in the wake of the coronavirus threat in the Central African country, Health Minister Armindo Tiago has said.
Tiago said the Mozambican authorities are closely watching events in Cameroon where at least two cases of the deadly coronavirus have been confirmed so far.
“Many countries are postponing games and we will carry out an analysis based on the number of infected cases in Cameroon, in which region the cases are and what is the intensity of transmission,” Tiago told journalists on the night of Monday, 9 March 2020.
Mozambique’s Mambas are expected to face the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon on 26 March 2020 at the Estádio de la Reunification in Douala.
Both the Mambas and Indomitable Lions are on four points, followed by Cape Verde and Rwanda.
