Who Will Emerge The 33rd Winner Of The African Nations Cup?


9th of January marks the grand opening of the 33rd edition of the continent-coveted African Cup of Nations; which has been themed AFCON 2021 – as it ought to have come up the previous year but was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Despite the pandemic, there have also been several issues posed as threats to the success of the tournament. One of these several issues happen to be the refusal of some European club sides to release their African stars for this glamorous competition. Several Nigerian stars like Odion Igahlo, Victor Osihmen, Taiwo Awoniyi, Troost Ekong, and Kenneth Omeruo seem nowhere to be found at the Super Eagle’s camp as they are either down with injury, COVID-19 flu or an excuse from their clubs about not getting the invite from the Nigerian Footballing agency promptly. This very disturbing issue is not only common in the Nigerian team, but cuts across all teams that will be participating in the tournament at Cameroon.

Who will emerge the winner of the 33rd AFCON edition? Will Salah grasp the African footballer of the year again and outshine Sadio Mane who happens to be his team-mate at Liverpool? Will Eguavoen outshine the records of Berti Vogts? Can debutants Comoros cause an upset?

Stick around as the intrigues, dazzles, tackles, passion and fierceness that comes with AFCON is about to unfold, starting from 9th January to 6th February 2022
