Monrovia-LISCR FC starlet  Allen Njie has won the Most Valuable Player of the  WAFU Under-20 tournament held in Liberia. 

Morocco will replace Kenya as hosts of the 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN), organisers announced Sunday.

The emergency committee of the African Football Confederation (CAF) met Saturday in Lagos and unanimously decided to give Morocco the green light ahead of Equatorial Guinea. A third candidate, Ethiopia, was not considered because it did not provide a letter of guarantee from its government.

Original hosts Kenya fell behind with five-venue preparations for the biennial 16-team tournament, which runs from January 12-February 4, leading them to be stripped of the hosting rights last month.

Morocco have not hosted a senior CAF competition since the 1988 Africa Cup of Nations.

They were scheduled to stage the same event in2015, but withdrew fearing visiting supporters could bring the deadly Ebola virus into the north African kingdom.

Arsenal's manager Arsene Wenger has seemingly been duped by false reports that former football star George Weah had won Liberia's presidential election, even though the final results have not yet been announced.
