Cameroon’s football federation expressed their “consternation” on Monday in response to criticism from African Confederation president Ahmad Ahmad over their prospects of hosting the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

Ahmad had said on Saturday that the country’s infrastructure “wasn’t ready” to host the 2019 CAN and even suggested he may open a bidding process to other countries to help in putting on the event.
