CAF to name host of CAN 2010 Monday

Lagos- Nigeria (PANA) -- Africa's soccer governing body, CAF, will name the host of the 2010 African Nations Cup on Monday in Cairo, according to a schedule posted to the website of the soccer body.
The 13-member CAF Executive Committee will meet at an extraordinary session at its headquarters in Cairo, Egypt, to listen to final bid presentations by the five bidding nations.
The bidders, shortlisted by the committee in May, are Angola, Gabon/Equatorial Guinea (joint bid), Libya and Nigeria.
After the presentations, the committee will meet to decide the winner, which will then be announced by CAF President Issa Hayatou.
Of all the bidding nations, only Libya and Nigeria have previously hosted Africa's most prestigious football competition.
Last month, a five-member committee, led by Danny Jordan of South Africa, inspected the facilities of the five candidates.
Ghana will host the 2008 edition of the two-yearly competition
