This year’s African Cup of Nations has been so dramatic as teams which are the biggest in FIFA ranking being beaten up by uncounted teams.
It all started on 9 January after it failed to take place last year 2021 due to Covid-19 pandemic which was full of restrictions and lockdowns all over the world.
During this period many things including sporting activities were standstill until the end of 2021 when some restrictions were lifted.
On this wonderful tournament there was group B which contained teams like Senegal, Guinea from West Africa and Malawi as well as Zimbabwe from Southern Africa.
Malawi and Zimbabwe were the only qualifying teams out of 14 countries in the Southern Africa leaving South Africa, Zambia and DR Congo and many others.
Malawi on last Friday played against it’s own same region team which ended 2:1 in favor of Flames (Malawians) and today it was a must win game against Senegal unfortunately it has ended draw, nil nil.
On the other hand there was another match where Zimbabwe was up against Guinea where it has ended 2:1 in favor of Zimbabwe brave Warriors. In summary for this group number is Senegal with 5 points, second position is Guinea with 4 points and third is Malawi with 4 points and last place it’s Zimbabwe with 3 points.
The funny and dramatic things happened is that the Algeria which are the defending champions have not seen their victorious moments and also Ivory coast, Tunisia and Egypt.
This tournament is expected to end on 9 February, 2022 in Yaoundè, Cameroon where the champions shall pocket $5 millions.
