Egypt withdraws from 2015 African Games….

Egypt's women's team

Egypt has withdrawn its men’s Under-23 team and women’s senior team from the 2015 African Games, which will be held from 6-18 September in Brazzaville.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.

Women

Group A – Congo, Nigeria, Tanzania, Cote d’Ivoire

Group B – Cameroon, Ghana, South Africa

Men

Group A – Congo, Sudan, Zimbabwe, Burkina Faso

Group B – Ghana, Senegal, Nigeria.
