African Nations Cup

The bi-annual African Nations Cup will take place once again in 2017 after Ivory Coast beat Ghana on penalties in the 2015 edition. Nigeria won the tournament in 2013 courtesy of a 1-0 victory over Burkina Faso in the final. The 2012 tournament was won by surprise package Zambia as they stunned tournament favourites Ivory Coast in the final. The 2010 tournament was unfortunately shrouded in controversery after the Togo team bus was set upon by gunfire leading to the tragic death of three officials. Togo left the competition as a result. Egypt eventually won the tournament, defeating Ghana in the final.

Background

The tournament has survived the test of time and has now been running since 1957 and has improved enormously due to the format having gone through several important changes down the years. The first tournament for instance comprised only of three teams, but these days Nations have to go through an intense qualifying period before making the finals, similar in fact to the European Championships.

The three most dominant teams in competition history have been Egypt, with seven wins, followed by Ghana and Cameroon with four wins apiece.
