South Africa had originally expressed an interest in hosting the 2009 and 2010 events but later reneged[1] and Zimbabwe was given the task to host the tournament.[2]

Madagascar were to take part in the competition as the fourth team in group A, but withdrew.[citation needed] South Africa and Angola will take part with a Development XI and an U-20 squad respectively, and their matches will not be counted as A internationals by FIFA.
