Wonders shall never end as the countries regarded the poorest, and helpless countries Malawi and Zimbabwe emerged the Southern Africa representatives for this year’s African Cup of Nations Tournament which being held in Yaoundè, Cameroon.
In the SADC region there are 14 countries including South Africa, Zambia, Mozambique, Namibia, Angola, Botswana, Kenya, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and many others but only the unaccounted nations made it through.
Whether it can be expressed as unfortunate thing is that the said countries are also placed in same group of B. In the group B there are two Western African Nations thus Senegal and Guinea including those two in the Southern Africa.
The first match in the competition was between Senegal and Zimbabwe where Zimbabwe lost one to zero through penalty on Sunday whilst Malawi lost one nil against Guinea after a lot of sweat.
The other games so far played are between Ghana and Morocco where Morocco won 1 goal to nil and also Comoros Islands played against Gabon where Gabon took the day by one goal as well.
The Confederation Association of Football in Africa launched the AFCON tournament on 9 January, 2022 where the hosting nation Cameroon won 2 to 1 against Burkina Faso Warriors.
The matches will continue till February this year and there are 52 games to be played in the whole competition.
Some people were doubting that Cameroon could have a position to host the competitive Tournament as there were a lot of incidents of Boko Haram in the region but the country made it possible to make sure the security should be tightened and currently no cases of such insurgence reported.
