Confederation of African Football (Caf) President Issa Hayatou is looking forward to a successful U-20 Africa Cup of Nations tournament in Zambia and that once it is over, everyone will be happy with its organisation.
Hayatou was speaking after he arrived in Zambia ahead of the 2017 Total U-20 Africa Cup of Nations kick off in Lusaka.
"We gave the organization of this tournament to Zambia four years ago because CAF knows the African continent very well and we chose Zambia because were convinced of their ability to host a successful tournament," said Hayatou.
He arrived along with his wife, Caf 2nd Vice President Almamy Kabele Camara, Caf Executive Committee Members Kalusha Bwalya and Constant Selemani Omari (DRC) as well as a guest of the Caf Fatoumata Amara Sylla of Guinea.
The Caf President's delegation was welcomed at the Kenneth Kaunda International Airport by Ministry of Sport Permanent Secretary Mrs Agness Musunga and Faz President Andrew Kamanga among other senior government, Caf and Faz officials.
Zambia will host the 2017 Total U-20 Africa Cup of Nations from 26 February to 12 March.
