CAF officially approved Infantino’s candidacy during its general assembly in Tanzania on Wednesday, with Motsepe expressing the confederation’s and member associations’ support for “our brother situated in Europe.”

Re-elected unopposed as president of football’s world governing body in 2019, Infantino is set to stand for a third term at the 73rd Fifa congress next year.

No other candidate has yet declared an interest in standing in the Fifa elections against Infantino, who was first elected president in February 2016.

The 52-year-old Swiss-Italian took to the stage in Tanzania to thank Africa for its support and pledged his continuous backing to the game on the continent.
