There will be no change to the dates for next years African Cup of Nations despite the Ebola outbreak, the Confederation of African Football said Monday.
John Obi Mikel Chelsea Jersey UK .CAF also said host country Morocco has until Saturday to agree to the schedule or lose
the tournament.CAF maintained its position on Africas top football tournament
after a meeting of its executive committee in Algeria over the weekend and then
meetings with Moroccan officials — who want the cup postponed — in Rabat,
Morocco on Monday.In a statement, CAF said Moroccos football federation should
now clarify its final position on the tournament by Saturday. CAF will meet next
Tuesday to make a final decision on Moroccos hosting, it said.There was no
immediate comment from Moroccan officials, who had maintained before the
meetings with CAF President Issa Hayatou that they would stand by their decision
not to host on the planned dates of Jan. 17-Feb. 8.CAF will talk to other
countries willing to host if Morocco doesnt agree to hold the tournament on
those dates, although its unclear if anyone wants to step in.Possible stand-in
hosts South Africa, Egypt and Sudan have all said they wont stage the
tournament. Ghana and Nigeria are believed to be considering if they want to act
as short-notice hosts.Last month, Morocco asked for the 16-team competition to
be delayed because of the threat of fans arriving in numbers from Ebola-affected
countries. The virus has killed about 5,000 people in West Africa in the worst
recorded outbreak. The deaths have almost all occurred in the three
worst-affected countries of Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.In its statement,
CAF listed reasons why the cup should go ahead in January and February, saying
the numbers of travelling fans would be low, Morocco has no reported Ebola
cases, and the dates cant be moved because they fit in with FIFAs calendar.CAF
also cited its commitments to its commercial partners, with the African Cup of
Nations the organizations most important and valuable tournament.CAF has kept
the qualifying competition for the African Cup going by banning all games in
Guinea and Sierra Leone and ordering their teams to play home games in neutral
countries. Liberia isnt involved in the final qualifiers.___Gerald Imray is on

Fla. -- With the famed No. 3 on his car and memories of the late Dale Earnhardt
fresh in his mind, Austin Dillon took the fabled number out of hibernation and
straight to the top at Daytona. Dillon reawakened the days of The Intimidator
and proved he can handle the spotlight thrust on his ride in the 3, winning the
pole Sunday for the season-opening Daytona 500. He took the top spot with a lap
at 196.019 mph in NASCARs season opener in a car Richard Childress has refused
to field at NASCARs top level since Earnhardts fatal accident on the last lap of
the 2001 race. But with his 23-year-old grandson ready to move to the Sprint Cup
Series, Childress allowed Dillon to use the number widely associated with the
seven-time champion. Earnhardt won 67 races, six championships and the 1998
Daytona 500 driving the No. 3. Dillon was a kid when he posed for a picture with
Earnhardt in Victory Lane following his breakthough 1998 win. Hell have many
more memories from this milestone, like the congratulatory handshake he received
from Richard Petty when qualifying ended. NASCARs family roots run deep, so
Childress never had to leave the family tree to find the right driver for the
number. Dillon has been using it in NASCAR national competition since 2009, when
he made his Truck Series debut in the No. 3. He won the Truck championship in
2011 driving the No. 3 for Richard Childress Racing, and the Nationwide title
last season in the same number. So Childress knew -- he always knew and has
insisted that Earnhardt gave his blessing long before his death -- that Dillon
could use the number if he ever made it to Cup. Dillon doesnt take the
responsibility lightly. "Everybody wants to see this number perform well, and
thats what my goals are," Dillon said. "I love getting in that race car and
driving it. I think once we get through some of these races here at the
beginning of the year, everything will sink in and Ill get comfortable and be
able to have some fun.&quoot; Its the fourth time the No. Cesar Azpilicueta Chelsea Jersey UK. 3 has won the pole for the Daytona 500. Buddy Baker did it in 1969, Ricky Rudd in 1983
and Earnhardt in 1996. Martin Truex Jr., driving a Chevrolet for Furniture Row
Racing, qualified second with a lap at 195.852 mph. Truexs engine is built by
Earnhardt-Childress Racing, giving the company a sweep of the Daytona 500 front
row. "Obviously, without that thing under the hood, we wouldnt be where we are,"
said Truex, who won the Daytona 500 pole in 2009 with an ECR engine when he
drove for Earnhardt Ganassi Racing. The rest of the field is set Thursday
through a pair of qualifying races, but Childress and the ECR engines are
strong: They had five cars in the top 12 on Sunday. Childress knew he had a shot
at the pole, if not with Dillon then from another one of his four Richard
Childress Racing entries. All were fast in January testing, and again in two
Saturday practice sessions. But it was Hendrick Motorsports driver Dale
Earnhardt Jr., the first driver to make his qualifying attempt, who set the pace
early and held down the provisional pole for most of the session. RCR drivers
Brian Scott and Paul Menard failed to bump Earnhardt, and it was surprisingly
Ford driver Greg Biffle who finally did it as the 33rd driver to take his turn.
Ryan Newman then took his shot for RCR and missed, and Dillon was the next
driver out. He shot to the top of the board and his grandfather pumped his fist
in celebration. He then nervously watched as the final 10 drivers made their
runs, and gave another fist-pump in celebration. "We wanted to come down here
and put on a good show with the 3, and to have another ECR engine with Furniture
Row on the front row, we couldnt be more proud," Childress said. So could he
finally relax? "The pressure is always on when youve got grandsons racing for
you," said Childress, who thanked all the sponsors who "believed in this young
kid, who took a chance on him." Cheap Jerseys From China wholesale jerseys ' ' '
