Cameroon international forward Jacquette Ada has suggested the rescheduling of the 2020 Women’s African Cup of Nations as a result of the coronavirus crisis.
Ada says postponing Africa women's biggest football tournament to a later date will give the female footballers a better chance to prepare for the continental showpiece.
The Women’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifications scheduled for April 2020 were suspended over the growing concerns of the coronavirus pandemic.
The 28-year-old who is hopeful to represent Cameroon at the biennial football competition also said realising a successful tournament demands a lot and fixing it in a later date will be essential.
“Given the preparations for the AWCON entails alot, it would be better to postpone it in order to enhance the chances of having a great competition," she told kick442.com in Cameroon
"A project ends up being successful if it is well planned. CAF knows the technicalities better and I am certain they want a great event reason it’s advisable to postpone and safe if we go into the event after a good preparation."
This year's edition of the Women's Africa Cup of Nations is slated to take place from 23 November 2020 to 20 December 2020 despite not having a host.
The Republic of Congo who were to host the 12th edition of the Women's football event pulled out in July 2019.
