The Egypt Football Association (EFA) has said that it is interested in bidding to host the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations despite previous comments to the contrary.

Just eight days ago, the EFA ruled itself out of stepping in to replace Cameroon as hosts.

This latest development follows a meeting between EFA President Hany Abo Rida and his Confederation of African Football (Caf) counterpart Ahmad Ahmad.

“We’re preparing a file to send to Caf and we’re waiting for formal approval from the government,” EFA’s Ahmed Megahed told reporters.

Caf is seeking a replacement for Cameroon, which was stripped of hosting rights last month because of poor preparations.
