Zambia To Bid To Host 2025 Nations Cup

Zambia's President Edgar Lungu says his country will bid to host the 2025 Africa Cup of Nations. The announcement comes after Zambia successfully staged the Under-20 Nations Cup which they also won on Sunday.

President Lungu met with Confederation of African Football (Caf) president Issa Hayatou on Monday and made the declaration that Zambia would bid for the Africa Cup of Nations in eight years time.

"I don't know the bidding process, but as a politician, I am bidding right now. I am bidding on behalf of all Zambians," President Lungu said"We can improve on the hotels, roads, and transport."

Zambia has never hosted the tournament before.
