Afcon qualifying: Lesser lights take centre stage on final weekend

When the Confederation of African Football ratified an expansion to the Africa Cup of Nations in July 2017, introducing eight more teams to the biennial competition, the dynamic of the qualifying program was always going to change.

As had been the case ahead of the European Championship in 2016, for which UEFA had instigated an increase from 16 to 24 teams, many of the continent's heavyweights cruised to the tournament with games to spare.

However, an overall decrease in drama among the bigger nations...

Africa Cup of Nations qualification: What's still at stake?

The road to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations has been paved with troubles, with the tournament often appearing to be at the mercy of the Confederation of African Football's internal politics and, notably, the regime change from Issa Hayatou to Ahmad Ahmad in March 2017.

The change in CAF presidency prompted the Afcon changes instigated at the CAF symposium in July 2017, where it was decided that the tournament would be expanded from 16 to 24 teams, even though the 2019 qualifying campaign had already...

Morocco beat Tunisia to end 2018 on a high

Morocco drew a line under an encouraging 2018 with a 1-0 victory away in Tunisia on Tuesday evening.

Youssef En-Nesyri scored the only goal of the game in the 41st minute - the sixth strike of his international career - from close range after Medhi Benatia's free kick bounced back off the post and into his path.

The hosts pressed intensely as they sought...

Mohamed Salah struck a fine 90th-minute winner as Egypt defeated rivals Tunisia 3-2 in Friday's Africa Cup of Nations qualifier at the Borg El Arab Stadium, Alexandria.

Naim Sliti opened the scoring in the 14th minute for the visitors, but his opener was cancelled out when Trezeguet levelled the match for the hosts just after the half-hour mark.

Baher El Mohamady fired Egypt ahead on 60 minutes, but Sliti thought he'd rescued a point for the Carthage Eagles with his second in the 72nd minute.

However,...

Al-Ahly's Walid Azaro suspended for CAF Champions League final

The Confederation of African Football have suspended Al-Ahly striker Walid Azaro for unsporting behaviour following his actions in the first leg of the CAF Champions League final against Esperance, meaning he will miss Friday's second leg in Rades.

The Morocco international was at the centre of a tempestuous affair which Ahly won 3-1 in Alexandria on Friday, after being awarded two penalties in dubious circumstances.

The Egyptian Premier League's top scorer from last season was, at one point, caught...
