CAMEROON and Nigeria are among five nations who want a shot at this year’s Cecafa Challenge Cup in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.
The body’s Secretary General Nicholas Musonye told Times Sport that a decision is yet to be reached on the subject. He also pointed out that Cecafa would select strong sides to make the event more competitive.
Mali, Zambia and Malawi complete the list of foreign teams.
The tournament is scheduled to run from November 27 – December 13.
Tanzania will host the event for the second year running, the first time it has happened in the competition’s history.
Last year, Tanzania’s Taifa Stars lifted their third Challenge Cup title after a hard fought 1-0 win over guest side Ivory Coast in the final. Rwanda was knocked out in the quarter-finals.
