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 the next edition of AFCON. 

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.
