However, Ghana have been stripped of the hosting right and reports say the decision was due to the ongoing crisis that has hit Ghana football.

The Black Starlets will now travel to Niger to face countries from other parts of West Africa in the zone B.

It would be recalled that investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas' latest expose' dubbed 'Number 12' caught several football administrators and match officials on camera receiving monies suspected to be briibes.
