The West African country has been under military rule since a coup last year and that has led to concerns over security and organisation for the 2025 finals.

An official of CAF told BBC Sport Africa that neither his organisation nor Guinean football officials have discussed ceding the hosting right to another country.

“The host for the 2025 tournament remain Guinea and that has not changed,” the official stated.

“We’ve not discussed anything about a replacement or received any communication from Guinea about the inability to host. At this very moment, everything is on track for Guinea to host and there is no reason to suggest otherwise.”

  • Thank you CAF. Such an ultra stupid, stupid suggestions by drunk and sit-tight Pinnick. Instead of preparing his exit, he’s busy talking nonsense about hosting other nations when even indigenes don’t feel safe any longer.

    You think the world doesn’t read and watch news about the daily abductions, kidnappings for ransom, banditry, hyper inflation etc. Which country will send its precious elite footballers to come and camp here for 3 weeks at this precarious time when the country is on edge?

    Stupid, stupid Pinnick. He helped install Motsepe for his selfish ambition and wants to seek another favor – in terms of a senseless hosting bid for a final cashout for a permanent vacation with his family in Ibiza.

    Ex-footballers, sports administrators, current players and coaches, the media and football fans, please let’s all join hand and push out this despot now!That should be our priority at this time. CSN please lead the charge. Dedicate like 30% of your daily report to this course. If necessary, make it a smear campaign. This is now MISSION CRITICAL!!

  • I said it yesterday, we have a very slim chance of winning the hosting right…

    This piknick or whatever are not just sensitive at all to anything going on in Nigeria, it is not their fault all.

    They have taken Nigerian for a fool. How can a country whose her president just received a direct threath of being kidnaped by terrorist be thinking of hosting right?

    How come we have stupid and insensitive leaders liter everywhere, all sector in Nigeria like this self. From gbajabiamila to this piknick show how clueless Nigerian leaders are.
