Kenya stripped of hosting African Nations Championship after 'delays'

Kenya
Kenya will be replaced as hosts within two weeks.

Kenya has been stripped of the right to host the 2018 African Nations Championship.

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) cited "accumulated delays" in the country's preparations for the tournament, the continental championship for players playing in their home leagues.

Mauricio Pochettino is hopeful that Victor Wanyama will be available for Tottenham Hotspur's Premier League opener against Newcastle United after picking up a preseason injury.

The Kenya international picked up an injury in Spurs' 4-2 International Champions Cup victory over Paris Saint-Germain on Sunday.

He missed Tuesday's 3-2 defeat by AS Roma, and the 3-0 loss against Manchester City on Saturday to add to Tottenham's less-than-convincing preseason.

However, speaking after the defeat by City,...

"He is a player who will contribute a lot with his qualities and his experience...
