will begin on January 9 and will continue until February 6 in Cameroon.
It is one of the world’s biggest competitions as many world-class players are there to represent their countries to gain a continental trophy.

To support and defend AFCON, many legendary players like
Ashely Williams and Nedum Onuoha
as well as stars Patrick Vieira and Ian Wright talked about the tournament.
“It’s a tournament that came in the middle of the season, I know it’s not ideal but it’s a massive tournament. You know, I think there is a little bit of disrespect towards it.”
Onuoha then added:
“It’s like when players are called up to represent England, when you go to Wembley it feels incredible, all African players feel that for their respective nations.”
