World Cup qualifiers who reached the quarter-finals in Cameroon, Vahid Halilhodzic has remained in the post, despite discontent among supporters and various members of the playing staff.

NIGERIA

The Super Eagles will be desperate to bounce back after missing out on the World Cup, but theirs is a muddled set-up, with questions about the head coach’s role and the general running of the set-up in light of an abject playoff double-header defeat by rivals Ghana.

EGYPT

Another team to have missed out on Qatar, the Pharaohs are the most successful side in Afcon history.

2023 might be a golden—final—opportunity for Mohamed Salah, one of the continent’s greatest players, to leave his mark in the Nations Cup.

CAMEROON

Enjoying something of a renaissance this year, coupling bronze at the Afcon with World Cup qualification, and will be massively boosted by that last-gasp victory over Algeria in qualifying.

AlGERIA

Champions in 2019, but Algeria are enduring a difficult year, with Afcon failure coupled with missing out on the World Cup.

Still, there’s immense quality—and experience—in their ranks, and it wasn’t that long ago that the Fennecs were enjoying a record-breaking undefeated streak.

MALI

Pushed Tunisia close in World Cup qualification, only to fall short.

IVORY COAST

Guaranteed to qualify as hosts, but the Ivory Coast will still take part in the qualifying campaign.

BURKINA FASO

Impressed many by reaching the semi-finals of the Nations Cup, but appear one of the weaker sides in Pot One.

GHANA

Made up for a dismal Nations Cup by qualifying for Qatar ahead of Nigeria, and the Black Stars appear to have momentum on their side as they look to finally end their wait for an African crown.
