Egypt submits surprise 2019 African Nations Cup hosting bid

The Egyptian Football Association has submitted a bid to replace Cameroon as next year's African Nations Cup host.

Morocco had been considered the front-runner after being a candidate to host the 2026 World Cup, only to lose out in that race to a joint United States-Mexico-Canada bid.

Geoffrey Kondogbia nets first CAR goal to nab late point in Rwanda

Geoffrey Kondogbia scored his first international goal in the 95th minute of the Central African Republic's 2-2 draw in Rwanda to rescue a last-minute point for the visitors.

The draw extinguishes the Amavubi's feint hopes of reaching their first Africa Cup of Nations since 2004, and keeps alive the CAR's chances of reaching Cameroon next year.

Jacques Tuyisenge scored twice for Rwanda, either side of Habib Habibou's equaliser, before Kondogbia's intervention at the death.
