some facts

Nigeria back at africa cup, after missing out of main stage the last 2 times (before that though they had become 3rd quite a few times, won the cup once, and also been runner up)


Tunisia is the most consistently active nation at africa cup, Always been there at main stage since them hosting it in 1994


Tanzania's first appearance was in 1980, they had failed to qualify every year until now


Madagascar had a few shock upsets last year in another african trophy, outing south africa with penalty's there in quarter finals, this is their debut at biggest african competition, they play a friendly en route for this against luxembourg today

Group D looks brutal. Poor Namibia.

Nigeria, Senegal and Tunisia can just walk to the quarterfinals basically.

Very true, Egypt is going to be very tough. Especially if they have Salah in their team.

yes and their one reserve goalkeeper, El Sayed who is now 47 yrs old, he has won quite a few africa cups already, also many cups and league titles in egyptian competition (of course just egyptian competition but still they have a very experienced player in him, good for motivating the team, and to keep a good combo of experience and talented youth)
