The Royal Moroccan Football Federation (FRMF) pulled out two months before the tournament's start in January, citing health risks from fans traveling from Ebola-affected regions in West Africa.

CAIRO -- The Confederation of African Football said Egypt is among four candidates to host the 2017 African Nations Cup.

CAF says Algeria, Gabon and Ghana are also being considered, while bids from Kenya, Sudan and Zimbabwe were ruled out for not meeting "set criteria."
