What Lies in Store at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations

It’s the last two games of the last 16 at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, it’s Mali against Ivory Coast and Tunisa vs Ghana. Two more teams from these fixtures have a chance to book their place in the quarterfinals of a tournament that has delivered bags of upsets. Nigeria dumped title-defenders Cameroon out while South Africa booted Egypt out of their own competition. Extra time and penalties await should teams go to a stalemate after 90 minutes. And we’ve already had our first shootout where underdogs Benin knocked title-hopefuls Morocco out of the competition. Madagascar and Algeria also booked their spot in the next round of knockouts.SOURCE: THE SOUTH AFRICAN
