The Confederation of African Football (Caf) Organising Committee for Futsal and Beach Soccer on Tuesday confirmed Mauritius will play in the Futsal Africa Cup of Nations tournament in Morocco starting on January 28.

Futsal is a hard-court version of soccer, playing on a field with much smaller dimensions, normally indoors.

Mauritius replace South Africa who withdrew from the tournament which runs until February 7.

Mauritius joins host Morocco, Libya and Equatorial Guinea in Group A.

Group B is made up of Egypt, Guinea, Angola and Mozambique.

The top three teams will qualify to represent Africa at the 2020 FIFA Futsal World Cup from September 12 to October 4 in Lithuania.
