The third phase of the CAF U-23 Nations Cup, which is both the qualifying series for the CAF U23 Nations Cup and the Tokyo 2020 Olympics has been shifted.

Consequently, the fixtures of Sudan and Nigeria originally to hold in June has been moved to September. So also are the other matches in the series.

The matches have been rescheduled for between 2 and 10 September 2019, instead of the previously announced 3-11 June 2019.

The decision follows a recommendation by the CAF Executive Committee at its last meeting on 11 April 2019 in Cairo, Egypt, due to the proximity of the initial dates to the Africa Cup of Nations Egypt 2019, which will take place from 21 June to 19 July 2019.

The fixtures for the final round are as follows:

*South Africa vs Zimbabwe

*Zambia vs Congo

*Ghana vs Algeria

*Cameroon vs Tunisia

*Cote d’Ivoire vs Guinea

*Sudan vs Nigeria

*Morocco vs Mali

The seven winners after two legs will join host Egypt for the final tournament scheduled for 8-22 November 2019, where the top three finishers will represent the continent at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
