Black Stars of Ghana are set to learn new dates for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers when the Confederation of African Football (CAF) meets on Tuesday.

The Executive Committee of CAF will meet in an online conference to decide the fate of the competition which will be held in Cameroon.

The qualifiers have been halted due to the coronavirus outbreak with four rounds of qualifiers to play, although they could yet be scheduled for October and November.

Black Stars are top of Group C with six points from two games after beating South Africa and São Tomé and Príncipe before their double-header against Sudan were cancelled.

FIFA took a decision last week to cancel September’s window for national team matches in all regions, except Europe and South America.

Hence, qualifying for the 2021 AFCON is still far from complete and national team football on the continent is not due to resume before October in the wake of the novel coronavirus outbreak.

The decision has left CAF with fewer dates to try and complete the competition’s qualifying campaign and then finalise the field for the 24-team flagship football tournament in Africa.
