The end result is that we may not have the same coach take us to the World Cup or, if he does, he may not qualify us for the 2019 African Cup of Nations (Afcon). The question then is, what is to be done to ensure the honeymoon is followed by a good season?

 

About Africa Cup of Nations

Where to watch the AFCON 2017 live on TV and online?

The 2017 AFCON edition will hit the screens in style in USA, with giant broadcasters beIN Sports jumping at the opportunity to feed their subscribers with live matches on TV and online. The sports network, whose digital platform beIN Sports Connect is available on PC and also on mobile via iOS and Android apps, will cover both USA and Canada with their live AFCON streams.

Eurosport is leading the charge in Europe, including in the UK, with viewers having easy options to watch the games as they happen: Eurosport 1 and Eurosport 2. Subscribers may also turn to premium streaming platform Eurosport Player for action on-the-go in HD.

In Algeria – one of the tournament’s threatening countries, whence Leicester City’s star attacker Riyad Mahrez originates – private channel Décision TV, best known as DTV, holds the rights to the AFCON and will air the matches live.

In Senegal, public broadcaster Radiodiffusion Télévision Sénégalaise (RTS) will use its outlets to televise the competition from the group stage to the knockout stage. In the same fashion, state broadcaster RTI (Radiodiffusion-Télévision ivoirienne) will cover the historic event in Ivory Coast.

SABC and GTV will both telecast the 2017 AFCON live free-to-air in South Africa and Ghana respectively, however Africans wanting higher image quality and more extensive programming around the tournament will be able to switch to their pay TV options, namely English-language sports network SuperSport and its French-language counterpart Canal+ Afrique.

This also means maximum coverage of the AFCON will be available to stream live in numerous African countries–particularly sub-Saharan regions–on a wide variety of devices through DSTV Now and myCANAL Afrique.

More about the AFCON

The Africa Cup of Nations, officially CAN (French: Coupe d'Afrique des Nations), also referred to as African Cup of Nations, or AFCON, is the main international association football competition in Africa. It is sanctioned by the Confederation of African Football (CAF), and was first held in 1957. Since 1968, it has been held every two years. The title holders at the time of a FIFA Confederations Cup qualify for that competition.

In 1957 there were only three participating nations: Egypt, Sudan and Ethiopia. South Africa was originally scheduled to compete, but were disqualified due to the apartheid policies of the government then in power. Since then, the tournament has grown greatly, making it necessary to hold a qualifying tournament. The number of participants in the final tournament reached 16 in 1998 (16 teams were to compete in 1996 but Nigeria withdrew, reducing the field to 15, and the same happened with Togo's withdrawal in 2010), and since then, the format has been unchanged, with the sixteen teams being drawn into four groups of four teams each, with the top two teams of each group advancing to a knock-out stage.

Egypt is the most successful nation in the cup's history, winning the tournament a record of seven times (including when Egypt was known as the United Arab Republic between 1958 and 1971). Ghana and Cameroon have won four titles each. Three different trophies have been awarded during the tournament's history, with Ghana and Cameroon winning the first two versions to keep after each of them won a tournament three times. The current trophy was first awarded in 2002 and with Egypt winning it indefinitely after winning their unprecedented third consecutive title in 2010.

As of 2013, the tournament was switched to being held in odd-numbered years so as not to clash with the FIFA World Cup.

The 2017 Africa Cup of Nations, known as the Total Africa Cup of Nations, Gabon 2017 (also referred to as AFCON 2017 or CAN 2017) is the 31st edition of the Africa Cup of Nations. The tournament was scheduled to be hosted by Libya, until CAF rescinded its hosting rights in August 2014 due to ongoing war in the country. The is instead be hosted by Gabon. The 2017 African champion will qualify for the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup in Russia. This event is also part of the Africa Cup of Nations 60th Anniversary.
