The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has today announced that the upcoming 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers in Africa will be postponed.
In a press release, CAF stated that the upcoming World Cup qualifiers that were set to take place in June have been postponed due to COVID-19 concerns.
"The qualifiers will now take place in the existing windows of September, October and November 2021, and March 2022," the statement read.
"CAF is reassessing its protocols and processes to enhance the implementation of COVID-related protocols, including specifically focusing on pre-match testing which had been the source of some challenges in previous windows."
South Africa was scheduled to take on Zimbabwe and Ghana in June, but will do so later this year.
