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. 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.
