2019 WAFU Cup of Nations daily fixtures schedule

Senegal, the hosts, have won the WAFU Cup of Nations, while Guinea have claimed the Plate title. Check below for all the match reports and features from throughout the tournament.

Hang on... Where did Morocco disappear to?

Morocco had been invited to participate in the tournament for the first time, after Sierra Leone were banned from international football by FIFA earlier in the year, but the North Africans withdrew on Tuesday.

Morocco's Football Federation had planned to send the country's under-23 squad to the tournament, but leading clubs in Morocco refused to release players for the tournament, prompting the federation to withdraw.

Sierra Leone, who are WAFU members, hence were called up to take back their slot after their ban had been lifted by FIFA.
