The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has approved the Guinean Football Federation’s request to hold their match against Algeria in Morocco in the 2026 World Cup qualifiers.

The highly anticipated meeting is scheduled for June, with the Moroccan authorities expressing their full consent to host the event, and the weakest Cheikh Stadium in Laayoune, the capital of the Moroccan Sahara, is expected to be the venue.

The Algerian Football Federation received a letter from CAF informing it of the arrangements and the approval of the Moroccan side, in preparation for the upcoming clash.

Guinea’s request came because of the conditions of its stadiums and chose Morocco because of the facilities provided by the twinning agreement between the Guinean Federation and the Royal Moroccan Football Federation.

It is noteworthy that the twinning agreement was signed in Casablanca on May 18, 2022, with the aim of strengthening cooperation between the two countries, and the agreement includes the development of competitions, raising the level of refereeing and organizing various tournaments, in addition to attention to women’s football.
