The Confederation of African Football are set to announce the new hosts for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations (CAN) in the next two or three days after Morocco was stripped of the right to stage the tournament Tuesday.The fact that Morocco are also set to host the Club World Cup, only 25 days before the scheduled Jan. 17 kickoff, threw further doubts over Morocco's reasons prompting Hayatou and his members to pull the plug.The CAF also confirmed that qualification matches for the tournament will go ahead as planned Nov. 14-15 with the final round of matches set four days later.Those matches will determine which 15 teams will join the new hosts for the final stages which are set for Jan. 17 to Feb. 9, dates that CAF have adamantly said will not be changed.Morocco's stance is set to see them face further sanctions, notably financial but there is also the threat they could be banned from further CAN competitions.
