Egypt has withdrawn its men’s Under-23 team and women’s senior team from the 2015 African Games, which will be held from 6-18 September in Brazzaville.
The rules state that the Organising Committee could replace a team with the opponent it eliminated.
However, Senegal (Women) and Burundi (Men) decided not to take up a spot because of the short notice period.
It means both the men’s and women’s competition will have one group of three teams and one group of four.
Group A – Congo, Nigeria, Tanzania, Cote d’Ivoire
Group B – Cameroon, Ghana, South Africa
Group A – Congo, Sudan, Zimbabwe, Burkina Faso
Group B – Ghana, Senegal, Nigeria.
