    The tournament is slowly becoming more interesting. Algeria doing their best rendition of the Azzurri @ the 2010 world cup - a single point and bottom of their group after two games, losing to The Irrepressible Equatorial Guinea and snatching a draw against the Indomitable Sierra Leone.

    In the meantime, Egypt have been garbage, with El Neny making Fagiot and Arturd look like world class players.

    The first big shock of the tournament! Ghana, 4 times champions and 5 times runners up, have been eliminated, finishing bottom of a group containing Morocco, Gabon and Comoros.

    Algeria with a huge game tonight against Cote D'Ivoire (Ivory Coast). If Algeria fail to win, they're on that plane back to Algiers.

    10 teams have qualified to the RO16 (Burkina Faso, Gabon, Nigeria, Senegal, Cape Verde, Guinea, Cameroon, Egypt, Morocco and Malawi). Six more teams will join them tonight.

    Cameroon, Ivory Coast and Nigeria have been the most impressive teams so far. An honorable mention to Sierra Leone and Gabon.

    They should start playing this tournament in Europe, or Qatar/UAE or something. The terrible pitches just ruin the whole spectacle. That and go back to 16 teams FFS

    Morocco played some good football against Malawi, especially after falling behind to a scorcher.

    Senegal were largely unconvincing, only scoring against the Mighty Cape Verde once they had been reduced to 9 men!

    QF Matchups:

    Cameroon vs Gambia
    Tunisia vs Burkina Faso
    Morocco vs Egypt/Ivory Coast
    Senegal vs Mali/Equatorial Guinea
