South Africa-based players for CHAN 2020?

Speculation is rife that the Confederation of African Football (CAF) is proposing a new arrangement for the African Nation Championship (CHAN 2020)

The continental showpiece is a preserve for local based players only but there is a suspicion that CAF is contemplating allowing at least four players based in Africa, even outside their country, to take part.

This year’s edition of CHAN will be held in Cameroon, with the draw on tonight.

The suggestion, if it comes to pass might benefit some teams including Zimbabwe, who have numerous stars in the South African ABSA Premiership.
