AFCON 2019: Qualified Teams

ADVERTISEMENT

Fun fact. The only other time Tanzania played in the African Cup of Nations, Nigeria won it. Good omen? Possibly.

But, more importantly, the Taifa Stars will be in Egypt for the AFCON this June, after beating Uganda in their final game in Group L.

Emmanuel Amuneke are obviously one of 24 teams into the expanded tournament, while relatively big names (especially in a 24-team tournament) like Burkina Faso, Congo Brazzaville, Gabon and 2012 champions Zambia won’t attend. Here are the teams that will:
