Starts on Sat Ivory Coast the favourates Tunisia,Morocco and Ghana will fancy there chances. My tip is Senegal a far younger team more players in European leagues. Cameroon, holders Egypt, Nigeria and South Africa all failed to qualify. Mali, and Zambia could be dark horses. Hosts Gabon and Eq Guinea are both two of the weakest sides in Africa and the FIFA rankings.

It's on British Eurosport this year apparently.

Come on Ivory Coast. No real like for them but I'm being chased down by a team with Yaya Toure in it in t'Fantasy football, so the longer he is out the better.

Well Senegal are out just when they score an 89th-minute equaliser before Equatorial Guinea got a injury time winner. Did say Zambia could be a dark horse.

As i said on Facebook to people in a weekend where most people where looking at Suarez and Evra nice to see a team go out and win it in such a wonderful manner even if it was on pens. The singing, the praying.

The only bit I saw of this whole competition was the last 25 mins of extra time and the pens. I was cheering on Zambia as a few of my relatives used to live out there in a White Mischief kind of way plus Ivory Coast thought they "should" win it. To be fair to IC, going all the way to the final without conceding a goal is an achievement but you then have to win the final too. I thought my boys had done it with the retaken pen, why that was re-taken is beyond me, (fix?) so when Kolo missed his I was even praying to their god!

Plus, their manager was excellent!

And all the crap on Saturday made the two keepers shaking hands after Mweene scored in the penalty shootout an even nicer gesture. Great to see Zambia win it. You couldn't write a script like that. Film waiting to be made.

Very true, Mweene didn't just score, he did the other lad well and proper, I've seen strikers unable to sell a dummy as well as he did. That was a proper penalty, even more so considering the importance of the match.
