But Morocco Football Federation official Said Belkhayat, also a member of the Confederation of African Football, did not rule out a joint bid with another North African country to boost his nation’s chances. ”

Cup award brings dangers to avoid
BBC News – Mar 18, 2001
The first inkling of the executive committee decision came on the Fifa
website. It was made clear that the principle of rotating the hosting
of the World Cup between the different continental confederations had been
accepted – and that Africa would be first to start the proceedings in 2010. On Friday, though, we had to sweat through the press conference in Zurich
where Fifa president Sepp Blatter did not come out and categorically confirm
what his press people had put on the internet.

Hotel facilities are available, with first class accommodation in some government and privately owned lodging. Finishing touches

All the eight teams have been offered practice pitches just outside the city and security has been beefed up, although crime is not prevalent in Ethiopia. As the final finishing touches have been taking place during the week, fans turned out in their numbers to watch the work in progress. Last week, work in and around the stadium was completed, and a general cleaning programme in the vicinity of the ground. It took the organisers some two months to get everything ready, despite the fact that Caf awarded the tournament to Ethiopia three years ago. The eight teams have arrived to begin battle, not only for the trophy, but also for the four places to the Under-20 World Cup in Argentina in June.

The Mercenary from Holland
This Day – This Day (subscription) – Mar 17, 2001
Earlier, in the first round of the same competition, Nigeria had lost to the Samba boys. For a while, almost everybody felt that it would be difficult to break the Brazilian jinx in Nigerian soccer. But in the semi-final, Nigeria came from 1-3 goals down to level up. And went ahead to send the Brazilians packing through a memorable golden goal scored by Nwankwo Kanu, then captain of the team… But from “wobbling and fumbling”, faltering and falling which have characterised the Super Eagles in recent times, it has become apparent, even to the most fanatical and passionate of Bonfrere’s supporters, that Nigeria probably over-rated the technical adviser. In looking for a coach to replace Bora Milutinovic after France ’98, Nigeria gave as condition, that the technical adviser must be a world class coach. It is depressing that with just four matches to go, Nigeria is trailing Liberia and Sudan in Group B. With both countries having nine points each, Nigeria is left with seven points. The most depressing is the dismal performance of the team last Sunday in Accra, Ghana against the Black Stars, Ghana’s national team. The Ghanaians had given up on the 2002 world Cup ticket.
