Ebola Won’t Stop Nations Cup- CAF

The African Football Confederation (Caf) has rejected the Moroccan government's plea to postpone the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) amid the spiralling Ebola health crisis, reported.

The biennial international tournament is due to be hosted in the North West African country in January and February 2015.

However, there have been calls for qualifiers against afflicted countries - Sierra Leone and Guinea are among those competing for a place in next year's finals - to be postponed over Ebola concerns.

Morocco, 2015's host nation, has so far avoided any cases of the disease and its health ministry says "to avoid events which involve those countries affected by the Ebola virus" it wants the tournament to be postponed until a later date.
