23 teams out of 24 have qualified for next year's AFCON to be staged in Cameroon.
The 'big nations' in African football that include Egypt, Ghana, Nigeria as well as AFCON 2019 winners Algeria have all booked a place for theÂ next edition of AFCON.Â
The tournament was originally scheduled to be played in June and July 2021, but the CAF announced on 15 January 2020 that due to unfavourable climatic conditions during this period, the tournament would take place between 9 January and 6 February 2021.
So far 23 teams have qualified with Benin or Sierra Leone yet to make the list complete. Their match on Tuesday failed to take placeÂ after five players from Benin were declaredÂ COVID-19 positive.
However, CAF on WednesdayÂ has decided to postpone the AFCON 2021 qualification match between Sierra Leone and Benin to the next FIFA international window in June 2021.
Below is the list of teams who will be competing for the ultimate title next year.
