AFCON 2021: 7 places up for grabs for 16 teams

AFCON 2021: 7 places up for grabs for 16 teams

 

We now know 17 of the 24 nations that will be at the AFCON 2021. There are 7 tickets to be distributed during the 6th and last day of the qualifiers which starts this Sunday. 16 teams are eligible.

On Tuesday, Cameroon will know all its guests for the 33rd edition of the AFCON. There are only seven places left for the draw to be complete. In groups A, D, G, H and I, the dye is already cast. On the other hand, the suspense remains in seven other pools. This is the case in group C, which will come to an end today with a highly anticipated match between Sudan and South Africa. Indeed, the two teams are fighting for the last ticket because in the other match Ghana (10 pts) is already qualified and Sao Tome and Principe is eliminated.

Bafana Bafana (9 pts) only need a draw to validate their qualification. But the Nile Crocodiles (9pts) have home advantage. It will be the same configuration in Group B on Monday. Indeed, Burkina Faso and South Sudan, which face each other in Ouagadougou, have nothing left to play for. However, Malawi (7 pts) and Uganda (8 pts) must fight to accompany the Stallions.

5 tickets for Tuesday

The best part, however, is the end of the qualifiers on Tuesday. We will have the outcome for five groups. First in group E where only Morocco is certain of their fate. The Atlas Lions, already qualified, will host Burundi. Mauritania travels to the Central African Republic, who are still in the running. Also, in group F, behind the host country Cameroon, Cape Verde, Rwanda and Mozambique are still in the running.

Then Congo and Guinea Bissau will try to take the second ticket after Senegal, assured of being in Cameroon in group I. In group Kon the other hand, it will be a long-distance fight between Madagascar and Ethiopia. The Malagasy host Niger, already out, while the Ethiopians visit Côte d'Ivoire, qualified. Finally, in Group L, Sierra Leone have the opportunity to overtake Benin at home. The other match between Nigeria and Lesotho has no stake.
