 Reigning Champions and Power house, Nigeria will be absent from the tournament and so is Egypt. Nonetheless, here are some interesting facts.

– TP Mazembe and DR Congo goalie, Robert Muteba Kidiaba is the oldest player (somebody Hossam Hassan! lol ) at the Orange Africa Cup of Nations Equatorial Guinea 2015. The veteran will celebrate his 39th birthday on 1 February 2015.
– Third-choice Cameroon goalie, Pierre Sylvain Abogo is the youngest player at the championship. The captain of the Cameroon U-17 team turns 17 on 27 January 2015.
Most youthful AFCON ever – Of the 368 players present in Equatorial Guinea for the African Cup of Nations, only 26 are over 30 years (as at 17 January 2015) and 21 are less than 20 years. In summary, 321 of the players present in Bata, Malabo, Ebibeyin and Mongomo are between 20 and 30 years old.

  1. It is a known fact that some Russians do think that the African Cup of Nations is all about some “monkeys” running about with a ball, but I’m pleased to announce to you that this year’s edition of the ACN has been simply FUN-TASTIC! Top class football. Dramatic and NOT a single dull match so far.

    The results:
    Equatorial Guinea 1 – 1 Congo
    Burkina Faso 0 – 2 Gabon
    Zambia 1 – 1 D.R. Congo
    Tunisia 1 – 1 Cape Verde
    Ghana 1 – 2 Senegal
    Algeria 3 – 1 South Africa
    Ivory Coast 1 – 1 Guinea

  2. Another dramatic match just ended.

    Cameroon 1 – 1 Mali

    There goes the first round of matches. LOVELY!

  3. Its been an exciting, dramatic and in some matches quite controversial African Nations Cup…but the entertainment aint over yet.
