Starting a thread for the AFCON as it is now just around the corner.

Sarr and his Senegal have a somewhat tricky draw. Cameroon is a good opponent and if they finish 2nd in the group they are likely to face the Ivory Coast (home nation) or Nigeria in the last 16.

Mali are missing arguably their 2nd best player with Doucore at Palace being injured. If they can clinch second in the group they are likely to face Morocco.

I'm ready for Nigeria and the absurd number of quality attackers we have to somehow hurt me again.

Starts tomorrow.

Need Egypt to get to the final to keep Salah occupied as long as possible.
Who are the whipping boys in this tournament, Mozambique, Angola or Cape Verde ?

They drew vs a team they should beat comfortably.

Nigeria are so weird. All the strike power in the world but can't score more than one a game, and barely a single half decent qualified defender in the entire squad.

I can't remember the last time or head coach that actually brought cohesion to the team.

Pape starting on the bench, I'm guessing they are easing him back after that knock he picked up in his last game for us.

It wouldn't be AFCON without technical problems, its all part of the chaos.

Excellent video on the perception of the AFCON by HITC Sevens for those interested. Alfie's videos are always fantastic and worth a watch.

The right back? Do you think his Dad named him after his favourite player but got the spelling wrong?
