CAF changes date for Ghana-Kenya AFCON qualifier

Ghana's next 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Kenya has been moved to September next year.

The away match will be played between the weekend of 3-11 September.

This was after CAF released the new dates for the second round’s AFCON qualifiers, which was supposed to take place between 18-27 March 2018.

The third and fourth rounds will take place on 8-16 October 2018.

The fifth round has been moved one month forward to take place on 12-20 November 2018, instead of October, while the final round will take place at 18-26 March 2019.

CAF's decision to shift the Nations Cups to June instead of January has affected the calendar.

In addition, the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations will be expanded to 24 teams instead of 16.
