Egypt withdraws from football at All Africa Games

CAIRO -- The Confederation of African Football says Egypt has withdrawn both its men's and women's football teams from the All Africa Games in Republic of Congo next month.

CAF didn't give a reason for the withdrawal.

The African football body said Wednesday that it offered Egypt's places to the countries it beat out to qualify for the African games: Burundi in the men's and Senegal in the women's. However, both those countries declined to take part because of the short notice to prepare.

The All Africa Games will now have one group of four teams and one group of three in both the men's and women's competitions.

The African games in Brazzaville begin Sept. 4 and run for two weeks.
