The quarter-final matches scheduled for Ebebiyin and Mongomo at the ongoing African Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Equatorial Guinea have been moved to Bata and Malabo respectively.

Consequently, the winners of Group C who would have stayed on in Mongomo will now play their quarter final game against the runners up from Group D scheduled for Sunday in Malabo, while at the winners of Group D host the runners up from Group C also on Sunday in Bata.

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) announced these changes on Tuesday, saying the pitches in Mongomo and Ebebiyin could no longer be used after hosting Groups C and D.

With these changes, Ghana’s Black Stars will still have to travel to Malabo no matter how they finish in the Group C standings.
