AFCON 2023Q: 14 teams confirm places after June int’l window

The 2023 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) looks to be taking shape after 14 teams booked their slots at the tournament following the June international window.

With 14 places already confirmed, 10 more slots are left open and that could be cleared during the September window.

Zambia, led by former Black Stars head coach, will be making a return to the continental stage for the first time since the 2015 edition.

Burkina Faso and Cape Verde will also be at the continental showpiece next year with both teams on 10 points each heading into the last round of qualifiers. The latter’s qualification comes following a 3-1 home win over Burkina Faso in Group B.

Group C is still open with Namibia and Cameroon fighting for the two slots available.

Egypt will also be on the plane to Cote D’Ivoire after their 2-1 win away from home over Guinea at home on Sunday evening while Guinea’s qualification is yet to be confirmed.
