    Today we found out first teams to qualify to the 32nd edition of the Africa Cup of Nations. It is the first tournament to feature 24 teams and will be hosted by Cameroon, for the first time in June/July slot.

    First team to qualify after hosts is Madagascar, who will make its CAN debut. Tunisia and Egypt both secured qualification from their group today. Mauritania is on the verge of their first qualification, they will likely be in with home win over Botswana, who are with no points and no goals scored in three matches. Burundi might be another team to make debut, win in South Sudan might bring them to the Cameroon 2019 doorstep.

    There are two matchdays left, for most teams as some have delayed or postopned matches, one in November and one in March 2019.

    Stadiums in Cameroon are still far from finished, it is a race with time there.

    Shame. I suppose they will not complete those stadiums in next 5-10 years, if ever.
