The next Africa Cup of Nations hosts can cater for an expanded 24-team finals, says the head of Cameroon’s FA.

After sweeping changes to the Nations Cup this week, the Central African nation will now have to prepare for eight more teams than expected.

“I spoke this morning with our country’s hierarchy and the decision is that Cameroon is ready to host,” Tombi A Roko Sidiki told BBC Sport.
