The Indian Ocean Island of Comoros has been given full national status by the Confederation of African Football (Caf).

Caf took the decision to admit the country following a meeting of the executive committee, which took place in Cairo over the weekend.

The Comoros will be formally admitted as its 53rd national federation at next January's Caf congress in Tunisia, which will take place before the start of the Nations Cup finals.

Meanwhile, an operating budget of $11,812,600 has been approved for the running of the Caf secretariat over the next two years.

It excludes the sum that will be used to build training centres across the continent, a plan that was approved by Caf's executive committee during their April meeting in Johannesburg.

The six regional centres, which will be built in Cameroon, Ethiopia, Ghana, Senegal, Tunisia and Zambia, will cost $2.5 million each.

They will serve as youth academies and train the continent's medical and coaching personnel.
